LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. 



Department of the Corporation Commission, 

Raleigh, December 31, 1911. 

To His Excellency, W. W. Kitchik", 

Governor of North Carolina. 

Sir:' — We have the honor to transmit herewith, pursuant to pro- 
visions of law creating the Corporation Commission, the thirteenth 
annual report of the Commission. 

A brief statement of its contents will indicate the comprehensive 
scope of the report : 

A compilation of laws relating to the Commission, (a) as a Public- 
service Commission, (b) as a Banking Commission, (c) as a State 
Tax Commission. 

Freight tariff applying over the several lines of railroad in the 
State, including commodity tariff. 

Freight classification applying over all lines in the State. 

Distance tables for convenience in calculating rates. 

Express tariff and classification. 

Tariff for steamboat lines operating in the State. 

Assessment for taxation, in detail, of railroads, Pullman, express, 
telegraph, telephone, refrigerator, turnpike, steamboat, waterworks, 
street railway, bridge and canal, flume, electric-light and gas com- 
panies, bank stock, building and loan associations, cotton mills, and 
miscellaneous corporations. 

Statistical and financial reports from all railroad companies doing 
business in the State, giving detailed information as to capitalization, 
bonds, cost of road, operating revenue, etc. 

Aggregate statement of condition of State banks at close of busi- 
ness January 7, 1911; March 7, 1911; June 7, 1911; September 1. 
1911, and December 5, 1911. 

It has been the purpose to make this report as comprehensive as 
possible with reference to freight classification and tariff, so that in 
the hands of the shipper he may be able to calculate for himself the 
correct freight charge on any shipment within the State and see that 
he is charged the correct rate. 

Two hundred and sixty-one formal complaints were brought before 
the Commission during the year, making a total of 3,998 complaints 
handled since the Corporation Commission was established in 1899.

IV X. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

It is noticeable that, while there has been a constantly increasing 
volume of traffic handled by the carriers, there has been a decrease 
in the number of formal complaints made to the Commission annu- 
ally. As every specific complaint that is made is investigated and 
corrected, if any abuse is found, the decrease in the number of such 
complaints is interpreted as an indication of the better relations ex- 
isting between the carriers and the public than existed some years 
ago. The rights of each have been more clearly defined as public 
regulation has progressed. 

The railroad mileage in the State increased from 4,454 miles to 
4, 60S miles, an increase of 154 miles in 1911. 

Improved train service was inaugurated over a number of lines 
during the year, in several instances by agreement with the carriers. 
Two important passenger trains were inaugurated by order of the 
Commission, between Goldsboro and Wilmington, and Raleigh and 
Hamlet. These were at the time considered experimental, and the 
results have been quite gratifying. ~No application has been made 
to the Commission to discontinue the Goldsboro-Wilmington train, 
and it is, therefore, presumed that its patronage has been such as to 
make it satisfactory to the Atlantic Coast Line. The Seaboard Air 
Line, after a four months trial of the Raleiffh-Hamlet Shoo-flv, in- 
sisted that it was not paying operating expenses, and that they should 
be permitted to discontinue it. As it appeared from their report 
that it had approached the bare cost of operation, and had in four 
months- accommodated 18,187 people, the Commission declined to 
grant the permission. No further report has been made of the 
results of operation of this train, but it is believed that it is now 
paying expenses and proving a great convenience to the people served 
by this line. 

As a result of litigation upon assessment of railroad properties in 
1902, it was provided by the Legislature that railroad property should 
be assessed originally every fourth year, as real estate. Under this 
provision there was a quadrennial assessment made in 1911, which 
resulted in an increase from $84,833,358 to $115,239,684. (The 
details of this assessment will be found in this report, beginning at 
page 2, Part Two.) It was a novel experience to the Commission, so 
far as it is now recalled, to be publicly criticised by disinterested 
newspapers for having assessed some of the railroad lines too high. 
As the responsibility for the assessment of these valuable properties

LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. V 

has been upon the Corporation Commission since it was established, 
it has been given rather exhaustive consideration, and after investi- 
gation and observation of the methods of taxing this class of property 
in other States, the Commission is led to strongly commend the prin- 
ciples which have been laid down by our General Assemblies covering 
railroad valuation and taxation. Our appraisements are not made 
upon any single principle of valuation, any one of which will in some 
cases be misleading, but every element is taken into consideration. 
Some unproductive lines are assessed at the mere valuation of rails, 
ties, and tangible property. Other main thoroughfares of traffic, 
which have grown to be largely profitable by reason of the growth of 
dense traffic, have been assessed with reference to earning capacity, 
resulting in assessment of one line at $70,000 per mile. The Com- 
mission does not feel that any injustice can be done by a moderate 
assessment based upon actual net earning capacity. 

There was an increase in State banks during the year from 348 to 
362, and of total resources from $62,146,651 to $68,406,179. 

The continued growth of the banking interest of the State along 
healthy lines has been very gratifying. The importance to the pros- 
perity of a State of safe and convenient depositories of funds, facili- 
ties for exchange, and of ample capital for proper development of 
resources — commercial, manufacturing, and agricultural — is being 
fully appreciated and gradually coming into realization. 

During the twelve years the State banks have been under the super- 
vision of the Corporation Commission their total resources have 
grown from $13,222,501 to $68,406,179. It is a matter of consider- 
able satisfaction that in the daily handling of the vast sums of money 
through these twelve years less than $20,000 have been lost to deposit- 
ors in State banks during this time up to the failure of the Bank of 
Tarboro, at Tarboro, June 15, 1911. The amount of loss through 
this failure cannot at this time be ascertained. 

The Commission feels that with this record, in which was embraced 
one of the most disastrous panics in the history of the country, the 
depositors in our banks may feel reasonably secure. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Franklin McNeill.

IV. Appeals. 

1074. Right of; how taken. From all decisions or determinations made 
by the Corporation Commission any party affected thereby shall be entitled to 
an appeal. Before such party shall be allowed to appeal, he shall, within ten 
days after notice of such decision or determination, file with the Commission 
exceptions to the decision or determination of the Commission, which excep- 
tions shall state the grounds of objection to such decision or determination. 
If any one of such exceptions shall be overruled, then such party may appeal 
from the order overruling the exception, and shall, within ten days after the 
decision overruling the exception, give notice of his appeal. When an excep- 
tion is made to the facts as found by the Commission, the appeal shall be to 
the Superior Court in term-time ; otherwise to the judge of the Superior Court 
at chambers. The party appealing shall, within ten days after the notice of 
appeal has been served, file with the Commission exceptions to the decision or 
determination overruling the exceptions, which statement shall assign the 
errors complained of and the grounds of the appeal. Upon the filing of such 
statement the Commission shall, within ten days, transmit all the papers and 
evidence considered by it, together with the assignment of errors filed by the 
appellant, to a judge of the Superior Court holding court or residing in some 
district in which such company operates or the party resides. If there be no 
exceptions to any facts as found by the Commission, it shall be heard by the 
judge at chambers at some place in the district, of which all parties shall have 
ten days' notice. 1899, c. 164, ss. 7, 28 ; 1903, c. 126. 

1075. Appeal docketed; priority of trial; burden. The cause shall be 
entitled "State of North Carolina on relation of the Corporation Commission 
against (here insert name of appellant)," and if there are exceptions to any 
facts found by the Commission, it shall be placed on the civil-issue docket of 
such court and shall have precedence of other civil actions, and shall be tried 
under the same rules and regulations as are prescribed for the trial of other 
civil causes, except that the rates fixed or the decision or determination made 
by the Commission shall be prima facie just and reasonable. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 
Note. See s. 1112. 

1076. Heard at chambers by consent. By consent of all parties, the appeal 
may be heard and determined at chambers before any judge of a district 
through or into which the railroad may extend, or any judge holding court 
therein, or in which the person or company does business. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 



ACTS RELATING- TO THE COMMISSION. 5 

1077. To Supreme Court. Either party may appeal to the Supreme Court 
from the judgment of the Superior Court under the same rules and regulations 
as are prescribed by law for appeals, except that the State of North Carolina, 
if it shall appeal, shall not be required to give any undertaking or make any 
deposit to secure the cost of such appeal, and such court may advance the 
cause on its docket so as to give the same a speedy hearing. 1899, c. 1G4, s. 7. 

1078. Rates vacated pending appeal, how. The rates of freight and fare 
fixed by the Commission shall be and remain the established rates and shall 
be so observed and regarded by corporations appealing until the same shall be 
changed, reversed, or modified by the judgment of the Superior Court, unless 
the railroad company shall within fifteen days file with said Commission a 
justified undertaking, in a sum to be fixed by the Commission, conditioned to 
pay the State of North Carolina the difference between the aggregate freights 
charged or received and those fixed by said Commission, and to make a report 
of freights charged or received every three months during the pendency of 
such appeal ; and whenever such difference in freights equals or exceeds the 
penalty of such undertaking the Commission may require another to be exe- 
cuted and filed with them. From the time the undertaking first mentioned is 
filed the judgment appealed from shall be vacated ; but a failure for ten days 
to file any additional undertaking required by the Commission shall eo tnstanti 
revive such judgment. Out of the funds paid into the State Treasury under 
this section there shall be refunded to shippers the overpaid freight ascertained 
by the final determination of the appeal on the recommendation of the Com- 
mission, if application therefor is made within one year from such final deter- 
mination. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1079. Judgment Superior Court not vacated by appeal. Any freight or 
passenger rates fixed by the Commission, when approved or confirmed by the 
judgment of the Superior Court, shall be and remain the established rates and 
shall be so observed and regarded by an appealing corporation until the same 
shall be changed, revised, or modified by the final judgment of the Supreme 
Court, if there shall be an appeal thereto, and until changed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1080. Judgment on appeal enforced by mandamus. In all cases in which, 
upon appeal, a judgment of the Corporation Commission is affirmed, in whole 
or in part, the appellate court shall embrace in its decree a mandamus to the 
appellant to put said order in force, or so much thereof as shall be affirmed. 
1905, c. 107, s. 2. 

1081. Peremptory mandamus to enforce order, when no appeal. If no 
appeal is taken from an order or judgment of the Corporation Commission 
within the time prescribed by the law, but the corporation affected thereby 
fails to put said order in operation, the Corporation Commission may apply to 
the judge riding the Superior Court district which embraces Wake County, or 
to the resident judge of said district at chambers, upon ten days' notice, for a 
peremptory mandamus upon said corporation for the putting in force of said 
judgment or order ; and if said judge shall find that the order of said Commis- 
sion was valid and within the scope of its powers, he shall issue such peremp- 
tory mandamus. An appeal shall lie to the Supreme Court in behalf of the 
Corporation Commission, or the defendant corporation, from the refusal or the 
granting of such peremptory mandamus. 1905, c. 107. 



H". C. COKPOEATIOX COMMISSION. 



V. Injunction. 



1082. When granted; bond. No judge shall grant an injunction, restrain- 
ing order, or other process staying or affecting, during the pending of any ap- 
peal, the enforcement of any determination of the Corporation Commission fix- 
ing rates or fares, without requiring as a condition precedent the executing and 
filing with the Corporation Commission of a justified undertaking in the sum 
of not less than twenty-five thousand dollars for any company whose road is of 
less length than fifty miles, and fifty thousand dollars for any company whose 
road is over fifty miles in length, conditioned that the company will make and 
file with the Corporation Commission a sworn statement every three months 
during the pending of the appeal of the items of freight, with names of ship- 
pers, carried over such company's road within the pending ninety days, show- 
ing the freights charged and those fixed hy the Corporation Commission ; and 
in the event the determination of the Corporation Commission appealed from is 
affirmed in part or in whole, such company shall within thirty days pay into 
the treasury of North Carolina the aggregate difference between the freights 
collected and those fixed by the final determination of the matter appealed. 
1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1083. Restraining order vacated, when. Whenever the aggregate differ- 
ence between the freights collected and those fixed by the Corporation Commis- 
sion shall equal or exceed the sum specified in the undertaking, the Corporation 
Commission shall notify the appellant that another justified undertaking in 
like sum and with the same conditions as the original undertaking is required 
to be executed and filed with the Corporation Commission. A failure to file 
with the Corporation Commission the sworn statement provided for in the 
preceding section, or any one of them when more than one is required or asked 
for, or a failure to give an additional undertaking when required within fifteen 
days from notice so to do, shall vacate and render null and void any restrain- 
ing order, injunction, or other process to stay the enforcement of any deter- 
mination of the Corporation Commission as to schedules of rates. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7. 

1084. Suits on injunction bond. When any of the conditions of such 
undertaking are broken it may be sued on and enforced in the name of the 
State of North Carolina on the relation of the Corporation Commission by sum- 
mons returnable to the Superior Court of any county in the State at a regular 
term thereof. The solicitor of the district shall prosecute the action in his 
court in behalf of the State, and shall be allowed such fees, to be taxed in the 
bill of costs, as the court may order ; and the Attorney-General shall prosecute 
on appeal to the Supreme Court on behalf of the State, and shaH be allowed 
such fees, to be taxed in the bill of costs, as the court shall allow. 1899, c. 
164, s. 7. 

1085. What recovered; application of recovery. In cases where the sworn 
statements herein required to be made are not made the whole penalty of 
the undertaking shall be enforced and paid into the State Treasury. The 
sums paid into the treasury under the provisions of this section shall be 
used to reimburse the shippers of freight for the excess of freights paid over 
what should have been paid, such reimbursements to be made on recommenda- 
tion of the Corporation Commission: Provided, application therefor is made 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 7 

within one year after the determination of the appeal in which the undertak- 
ing was given. The recovery in each undertaking shall be applied to such 
excess of freight as has been paid during the period covered by such undertak- 
ing. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

VI. Penalties. 

1086. For violating rules. If any railroad company doing business in this 
State by its agents or employees shall be guilty of a violation of the rules 
and regulations provided and prescribed by the Commission, and if after due 
notice of such violation given to the principal officers thereof, if residing in the 
State, or, if not. to the manager or superintendent or secretary or treasurer if 
residing in the State, or, if not, then to any local agent thereof, ample and full 
recompense for the wrong or injury done thereby to any person or corpora- 
tion as may be directed by the Commission shall not be made within thirty 
days from the time of such notice, such company shall incur a penalty for 
each offense of five hundred dollars. 1899, c. 164, s. 15. 

1087. Refusing to obey orders of Commission. Any railroad or other cor- 
poration which violates any of the provisions of this chapter or refuses to con- 
form to or obey any rule, order, or regulation of the Corporation Commission

1097 (as amended). Stations and depots. The Commission is empowered 
and directed — 

1. To require, where the public necessity demands and it is demonstrated 
that the revenue received will be sufficient to justify it, the establishment of 
stations by any company or corporation engaged in the transportation of 
freight and passengers in this State, and to require the erection of depot 
accommodations commensurate with such business and revenue: Provided, 
the commissioners shall not require any company or corporation to establish 
any station nearer to another station than five miles, 1899, c. 164, s. 2, sub-

necessary. 1899, c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 13. 

3. Union depots. To require, when practicable, and when the necessities of 
the case, in the judgment of the Corporation Commission, require, any two or

convenience of the traveling public, and to unite in the joint undertaking and 
expense of erecting, constructing, and maintaining such union passenger depot, 
commensurate with the business and revenues of such railroad companies or 
corporations, on such terms, regulations, provisions, and conditions as the 
Commission shall prescribe. The railroads so ordered to construct a union 
depot shall have power to condemn land for such purpose, as in case of locating 
and constructing a line of railroad : Provided, that nothing in this section 
shall be construed to authorize the Commission to require the construction of 
such union depot should the railroad companies at the time of application for

mission, are adequate and convenient and offer suitable accommodations for 
the traveling public. 1903, c. 126.

railroad company to industries already established or to be established : Pro- 
vided, it is shown that the proportion of such revenue accruing to such side-

This shall not be construed to give the Commission authority to require rail- 
road companies to construct side-tracks more than five hundred feet in length. 
1899, c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 15.

1101. May fix rate of speed trains may run through a town; petition to 
be filed; procedure. If any railroad company shall be of the opinion that 
an ordinance of a city or town through which a line of its railroad passes, 
except in the counties of Cumberland, Rockingham, Union, and Wayne, regu- 
lating the speed at which trains may run while passing through said city or 
town, is unreasonable or oppressive, such railroad company may file its peti- 
tion before the Corporation Commission, setting forth all the facts, and asking 
relief against such ordinance, and that the Corporation Commission prescribe 
the rate of speed at which trains may run through said municipality. Upon 
the filing of the petition a copy thereof shall be mailed, in a registered letter, 
to the mayor or chief officer of the town or municipality, together with a notice 
from the Corporation Commission, setting forth that on a day named in the 
notice the petition of the railroad company will be heard, and that the city or 
town named in the petition will be heard at that time in opposition to the 
prayer of the petition. And upon the return day of the notice the Corporation 
Commission shall hear the petition: Provided, that any hearing granted by 
the Corporation Commission, as authorized by this section, shall be had at the 
town, city, or locality where the conditions complained of are alleged to exist, 
or some member of the said Commission shall take evidence both for the peti- 
tion and against it, at such city, town, or locality, and report to the full Com- 
mission before any decision is made by the Commission. 1903, c. 552. 

1102. To pass on ordinance and fix rate of speed. Either party, peti- 
tioner or respondent, shall have the right to introduce testimony and to be 
heard by counsel, and the Corporation Commission, after hearing the petition, 
answer, evidence, and argument, shall render judgment thereon. If the Com- 
mission shall find that such ordinance is reasonable and just, the petition shall 
be dismissed, and the petitioner shall pay all the costs, to be taxed by the clerk 
to the Corporation Commission. If the Corporation Commission shall be of the 
opinion that the ordinance is unreasonable, it shall so adjudge ; and in addi- 
tion thereto it shall prescribe the maximum rates of speed for passing through 
such town. And thereafter the railroad company may run its trains through 
such town or city at speeds not greater than those prescribed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission, and the ordinance adjudged to be unreasonable shall not be 
enforced against such railroad company. 1903, c. 552, s. 2. 

1103. When costs on hearing to fix rate of speed in discretion of Com- 
mission. If the judgment of the Corporation Commission shall be in favor of 
the petitioner, it shall be lawful for the Corporation Commission to make such 
order as to the payment of the costs as shall seem just. It may require either 
party to pay the same or it may divide the same. The costs in such proceed- 
ing shall be the same as are fixed by law for similar services in the Superior 
Court. 1903, c. 552, s. 3. 

VIII. Rates.

corporation used for the public, in the consideration of such rate or charge, or 
the fair value of the service rendered in determining the value of the property 
so being used for the convenience of the public. It shall furthermore consider 
the original cost of the construction thereof and the amount expended in per- 
manent improvements thereon, and the present compared with the original cost 
of construction of all its property within the State ; the probable earning 
capacity of such property under the particular rates proposed and the sum 
required to meet the operating expenses of such carrier, person, or corpora- 
tion, and all other facts that will enable them to determine what are reason- 
able and just rates, charges, and tariffs. 1899, c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 1. 

1105. What may be carried free. Nothing in this chapter shall prevent

vided they shall not travel further than ten miles one way on any one trip 
free of charge ; or to or from fairs or exhibitions for exhibition thereat ; or the

tion of indigent persons, or to inmates of National homes or State homes for 
disabled volunteer soldiers, and of soldiers' and sailors' orphan homes, includ- 
ing those about to enter and those returning home after discharge, under 
arrangements with the boards of managers of said homes ; or to prevent com- 
mon carriers from giving free carriage to their own officers and employees and 
members of their families, or furloughed, pensioned, and superannuated em- 
ployees, persons who have become disabled or infirm in the service of any 
such common carrier, and the remains of a person killed in the employment 
of a common carrier, and ex-employees traveling for the purpose of entering 
the service of any such common carrier, and the families of those persons 
named ; also the families of persons killed and the widows during widowhood 
and minor children during minority of persons who died while in the serv- 
ice of any such common carrier ; or to prevent the principal officers of any 
common carrier from exchanging passes, franks, or tickets with other common 
carriers for their officers or employees and members of their families. Noth- 
ing in this section shall be construed to prevent or restrict transportation 
companies from contracting with newspapers for advertising space in exchange 
for transportation over their lines to such an extent as may be agreed upon 
between the two parties for said consideration. The commissioners and their 
clerks shall be transported free of Charge over all railroads and other trans- 
portation lines which are under the supervision of the Commission; and when 
traveling on official business they may take with them experts or other agents 
whose service they may deem temporarily of public importance. 1899, c. 164,

transportation of passengers or of like kind of property under substantially 
similar circumstances and conditions for a shorter than for a longer distance 
over the same line in the same direction, the shorter being included within the 
longer distance ; but this shall not be construed as authorizing any common 
carrier within the terms of this chapter to charge and receive as great com- 
pensation for a shorter as for a longer distance : Provided, however, that 
upon application to the Commission, such common carrier may in special cases 
be authorized to charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers or property ; and the Commission may from time 
to time prescribe the extent to which such designated common carrier may be 
relieved from the operation of this section: Provided, that nothing in this 
chapter contained shall be taken as in any manner abridging or controlling the

earnings of any kind by competing railroad companies shall be submitted to 
the Commission for inspection and approval in so far as they affect the rules 
and regulations made by the Commission to secure to all persons doing business 
with such companies just and reasonable rates of freight and passenger tariffs ; 
and the Commission may make such rules and regulations as to such contracts 
and agreements as may then be deemed necessary and proper ; and any such 
agreements not approved by the Commission, or by virtue of which rates shall 
be charged exceeding the rates fixed for freight and passengers, shall be 
deemed, held, and taken to be violations of this chapter, and shall be illegal 
and void. 1899, c. 164, s. 6. 

1109. Published. All carriers shall, whenever required by the Commission, 
file with it a schedule of their rates of charges for freight and passengers, and

2620. Corporation Commission may exempt certain roads and trains. 
The Corporation Commission is hereby authorized to exempt from the provi- 
sions of the preceding section steamboats, branch lines and narrow-gauged 
railroads and mixed trains carrying both freight and passengers, if in its judg-

branch lines or mixed trains. 1899, c. 384, s. 2; 1901, c. 213. 

2621. When two races put in same coach. When any coach or compart-

portation whenever tendered at a regular depot, station, wharf, or boat land- 
ing, and every loaded car tendered at a side-track, or any warehouse connected 
with the railroad by a siding, and shall forward the same by the route selected 
by the person tendering the freight under existing laws ; and the transporta- 
tion company represented by any person refusing to receive such freight shall 
forfeit and pay to the party aggrieved the sum of fifty dollars for each day 
said company refuses to receive said shipment of freight, and all damages 
actually sustained by reason of the refusal to receive freight. If such loaded 
car be tendered at any siding or warehouse at which there is no agent, notice 
shall be given to an agent at the nearest regular station at which there is an 
agent that such car is loaded and ready for shipment. Code, s, 1964 ; 1903, cc. 
444, 693. (Held invalid as to interstate shipments.) 

2632 (as amended). Failure to transport in reasonable time; reasonable 
time defined; forfeiture. It shall be unlawful for any railroad company, 
steamboat company, express company, or other transportation company doing 
business in this State to omit or neglect to transport within a reasonable time 
any goods, merchandise, or articles of value received by it for shipment and 
billed to or from any place in the State of North Carolina, unless otherwise 
agreed upon between the company and the shipper, or unless same be burned, 
stolen, or otherwise destroyed, or unless otherwise provided by the North Caro- 
lina Corporation Commission. Each and every company violating any of the 
provisions of this section shall forfeit to the party aggrieved the sum of fifteen 
dollars for the first day and two dollars for each succeeding day of such un- 
lawful detention or neglect where such shipment is made in car-load lots, 
and in less quantities there shall be a forfeiture in like manner of ten dollars 
for the first day and one dollar for each succeeding day : Provided, the for- ' 
feiture shall not be collected for a period exceeding thirty days. In reckoning 
what is reasonable time for such transportation, it shall be considered that 
such transportation company has transported freight within a reasonable time 
if it has done so in the ordinary time required for transporting such articles 
of freight between the receiving and shipping stations ; and a delay of two 
days at the initial point and forty-eight hours at one intermediate point for 
each hundred miles of distance or fractions thereof over which said freight 
is to be transported shall not be charged against such transportation company 
as unreasonable, and shall be held to be prima facie reasonable, and a failure 
to transport within such time shall be held prima facie unreasonable. 1903, c. 
590, s. 3 ; 1905, c. 545 ; 1907, c. 217, s. 4. 

Delivery at destination within time specified. Section 1. That section 
two thousand six hundred and thirty-two, Revisal of one thousand nine hun- 
dred and five of North Carolina, providing a penalty for delay in the transpor- 
tation of freight, shall not be construed to refer only to delay in starting the 
freight from the station where it is received, but in addition thereto shall be 
construed to require the delivery at its destination within the time specified : 
Provided, however, that if said delay shall be due to causes which could not 
in the exercise of ordinary care have been foreseen, and which were unavoid- 
able, and upon establishment of these facts to the satisfaction of the justice 
of the peace or jury trying the cause, the defendant transportation company 
shall be relieved and discharged from any penalty for delay in the transporta- 
tion of freight, but it shall not be relieved from the costs of such action.

18 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

Sec. 2. That in all actions to recover penalties against a transportation com- 
pany under section two thousand six hundred and thirty-two, Revisal of one 
thousand nine hundred and five of North Carolina, the burden of proof shall 
be upon the transportation company to show where the delay, if any, occurred. 
1907, c. 461. 

2633. Paid at classified rates; penalty for overcharge. All common car- 
riers doing business in this State shall settle their freight charges according to 
the rate stipulated in the bill of lading, provided the rate therein stipulated be 
in conformity with the classifications and rates made and filed with the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission in case of shipments from without the State and 
with those of the Corporation Commission of this State in case of shipments 
wholly within this State, by which classifications and rates all consignees shall 
in all cases be entitled to settle freight charges with such carriers ; and it shall 
be the duty of such common carriers to inform any consignee or consignees of 
the correct amount due for freight according to such classification and rates, 
and upon payment or tender of the amount due on any shipment which has 
arrived at its destination according to such classification and rates such com- 
mon carrier shall deliver the freight in question to consignee or consignees, 
and any failure or refusal to comply with the provisions hereof shall subject 
such carrier so failing or refusing to a penalty of fifty dollars for each such 
failure or refusal, to be recovered by any consignee or consignees aggrieved 
by any suit in any court of competent jurisdiction. 1905, c. 330. 

2634 (as amended). Time within which loss or damage must be paid; pen- 
alty; amount of recovery; actions united; remedy cumulative. Every claim 
. for loss of or damage to property while in possession of a common carrier 
shall be paid and adjusted within ninety days, in cases of shipments wholly 
within the State, and within four months, in cases of shipments from without 
the State, after the filing of such claim with the agent of such carrier at the 
point of destination of such shipment, or point of delivery to another common 
carrier by the consignee, or at the point of origin by the consignor, when it 
shall appear that the consignor was the owner of the shipment : Proiided, 
that no such claim shall be filed until after the arrival of the shipment, or 
some part thereof, at the point of destination or until after the lapse of a 
reasonable time for the arrival thereof. In every case such common carrier 
shall be liable for the amount of such loss or damage, together with interest 
thereon from the date of the filing of the claim therefor until the payment 
thereof. Failure to adjust and pay such claim within the periods respectively 
herein prescribed shall subject such common carrier so failing to a penalty of 
fifty dollars for each and every such failure, to be recovered by any consignee 
aggrieved (or consignor, when it shall appear that the consignor was the owner 
of the property at the time of the shipment and at the time of suit, and is, 
therefore, the party aggrieved) in any court of competent jurisdiction: Pro- 
vided, that unless such consignee or consignor recover in such action the full 
amount claimed, no penalty shall be recovered, but only the actual amount of 
the loss or damage, with interest aforesaid. Causes of action for the recovery 
of the possession of the property shipped, for loss or damage thereto, and for 
the penalties herein provided for, may be united in the same complaint : 
Provided further, that no penalty shall be recoverable under, the provisions of 
this act where claims have been filed by both the consignor and consignee, un-

thousand six hundred and thirty-four of the Revisal shall apply to every 
express company, firm, or corporation doing express business in the State of 
North Carolina. 1907, c. 983. 

2635. Existing remedies continue. The preceding section shall not deprive 
any consignee of any rights or remedies now existing against common carriers 
in regard to freight charges or claims for loss or damage to freight, but shall 
be deemed and held as creating an additional liability upon said common car- 
rier. 1905, c. 330, s. 5. 

2636. Carrier's right against other carrier. Any common carrier, upon 
complying with the provisions of the two preceding sections, shall have all the 
rights and remedies herein provided for against a common carrier from which 
it receives the freight in question. 1905, c. 330, s. 3. 

2641. Charges on partial freight deliveries. Whenever any freight of any 
kind shall be received by any common carrier in this State to be delivered to 
any consignee in this State, and a portion of the same shall not have been 
received at the place of destination, it shall not be lawful for the carrier to 
demand any part of the charges for freight or transportation due for such 
portion of the shipment as shall not have reached the place of destination. 
The carrier shall be required to deliver to the consignee such portion of the 
consignment as shall have been received upon the payment or tender of the 
freight charges due upon such portion. But nothing in this section shall be 
construed as interfering with or depriving a consignor, or other person having 
authority, of his rights of stoppage in transitu. 1893, c. 495. 

2642. Not to receive more than tariff rate. No railroad, steamboat, ex- 
press, or other transportation company engaged in the carriage of freight, and 
no telegraph company or telephone company shall demand, collect, or receive 
for any service rendered or to be rendered in the transportation of property or 
transmission of messages more than the rates appearing in the printed tariff 
of such company in force at the time such service is rendered, or more than is 
allowed law. 1903, c. 590. 

2643. Overcharge on tariff rate refunded. In case of any overcharge, con- 
trary to the preceding section, the person aggrieved may file with any agent 
of the company collecting or receiving greater compensation than the amount 
allowed in the preceding section a written demand, supported by a paid freight 
bill and an original bill of lading or duplicate thereof, for refund of overcharge, 
and a maximum period of sixty days shall be allowed such company to pay 
claims filed under this section. 1903, c. 590, s. 2. 

2644. Penalty for failure to refund overcharge. Any company failing to 
refund such overcharge within the time allowed shall forfeit to the party 
aggrieved the sum of twenty-five dollars for the first day and five dollars per 
day for each day's delay thereafter until said overcharge is paid, together 
with all costs incurred by the party aggrieved : Provided, the total forfeiture 
shall not exceed one hundred dollars. 1903, c. 590, s. 2.

and contemporaneous service in the transportation of a like kind of traffic

give any undue or unreasonable preference or advantage to any particular 
person, company, firm, corporation, or locality or any particular description

offense. 1899, c. 164, s. 13.

of passengers and freights to and from their several lines and those connect- 
ing therewith, or shall discriminate in their rates and charges against such 
connecting lines, or if any connecting lines shall not make as close connection as 
practicable for the convenience of the traveling public, or shall not obey all 
rules and regulations made by the Corporation Commission relating to track- 
age, it shall be punished by a fine of not less than five hundred dollars nor 
exceeding five thousand dollars for each and every offense. 1899, c. 164, s. 21.

has the right, license, or permission to use, operate, or control the same, it 
shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall 
be fined not less than five hundred nor more than five thousand dollars. 1899, 
c. 164, s. 12.

FREIGHT RATES— MAXIMUM CHARGES— JOINT HAUL DEDUCTION- 
DISCRIMINATION— CARS FOR LOADING. 

Section 1. That the Corporation Commission, created by the laws of North 
Carolina, shall not, in fixing the maximum rates and charges or tariff of rates 
or charges for any common carrier transporting freight in North Carolina, 
permit or allow any such common carrier to charge, collect, or receive a greater 
toll, charge, or rate for the transportation of any article of freight or com- 
modity embraced in the present classification fixed and prescribed, or approved 
by said Corporation Commission, where the initial point of shipment is on the 
road or line of one common carrier in this State and the terminal point of said 
shipment is on the line or road of another common carrier in this State, than 
is the sum of the present local rates now established, prescribed, or approved 
by said Corporation Commission, less a reduction of twenty-five per centum 
of the said local rates on all railroads for which there is now made or pre- 
scribed a reduction for a joint haul ; and on those railroads for which there is 
not now prescribed a reduction on joint hauls a reduction of fifteen per centum 
of the local rates now established, prescribed by said Corporation Commission 
for said railroads: Provided, that those railroads of this class whose rates 
are lower than the Corporation Commission's standard of freight rates may 
be permitted by said Commission to adopt the standard rates prescribed by 
said Commission : Provided, that the Corporation Commission is hereby em-

otherwise: (Amendment) Provided further, that the Corporation Commis- 
sion shall have power, when it is made to appear that it is just to do so, to 
exempt from the operation of section one of said chapter two hundred and 
seventeen of the Public Laws of one thousand nine hundred and seven that 
part of the charges of a joint haul which is over the line or lines of a railroad 
company, which company now owns, leases, or operates not more than one 
hundred and twenty-five miles of railroad in or out of this State. 1908,

eral counties in the State in the following manner : 

Sec 9. Lands; how equalized. 

Lands shall be equalized by adding to the aggregate assessed value thereof, 
in every county in which said board may believe the valuation to be too low,

ACTS RELATING- TO THE COMMISSION. 37 

Treasurer as aforesaid be shall institute an action against the bank, banking 
association or savings institution to enforce the same in the county of Wake 
or in the county in which the bank, banking association or savings institution 
is located, which action shall be prosecuted in the name of the State of North 
Carolina on the relation of the Treasurer of the State and which shall be 
tried at the return term of court : Provided the complaint is filed ten days 
before the first day of such term, and shall have precedence over all other 
actions. The board of commissioners of the county in which such banks, 
banking associations or savings institutions are located shall assess against 
the value of shares of residents in that county the tax imposed for school and 
county purposes, which shall be paid to the sheriff of that county, and shall 
assess against the value of shares held by nonresidents of this State in such 
bank, banking association or savings institution located in that county the 
said tax imposed for school, county, and municipal purposes ; and the said 
bank is authorized and empowered to deduct such tax from the dividends of 
said nonresident stockholders. The value of such shares shall be determined 
as is hereinafter in this section provided. Every bank, banking association or 
savings institution (whether State or National) shall list its real estate in 
the county, city or town in which such real estate is located, for the purposes 
of State, county, and municipal taxation. Every such bank, banking associa- 
tion or savings institution shall, during the month of June, list annually with 
the Corporation Commission, in the name and for its shareholders, all the 
shares of its capital stock, whether held by residents or nonresidents, at 
its market value on the first day of May, or, if it have no market value, then at 
its actual value on that day, from which market or actual value shall be de- 
ducted the assessed value of the real and personal property which such bank, 
banking association or savings institution shall have listed for taxation in the 
county or counties wherein such real and personal estate is located. The actual 
value of such shares, where such shares have no market value, shall be ascer- 
tained by adding together the capital stock, surplus and undivided profits and 
deducting therefrom the amount of real and personal property owned by said 
institution on which it pays tax and dividing the net amount by the number of 
shares in said institution. Insolvent debts due said institution may be deducted 
from the items of undivided profits or surplus, if itemized and sworn to, and 
forwarded to the Corporation Commission by the cashier of such institution, 
also, accrued and unearned interest, unpaid taxes, an amount not exceeding 
five (5) per cent of the bills receivable of said institution to cover any other 
bad or insolvent debts, and also an amount equal to the true value of any 
shares of stock owned in other North Carolina banks or corporations upon 
which the tax is paid by the owner or the corporation issuing the same. If 
the Corporation Commission shall have reason to believe that the market or 
actual value as given in is not its true value, it shall ascertain such true 
value by such examination and investigation as to it seems proper, and change 
the value as given in to such an amount as it ascertains the true value to be, 
which action on the part of the Corporation Commission may be reviewed by 
the Superior Court by an action brought against the Corporation Commission 
in its official capacity by the party aggrieved. But no action shall lie until 
all taxes admitted by such aggrieved party to be due shall have been paid or 
tendered. In listing the shares for State taxation, such bank, banking asso-

ciation or savings institution shall file with the Corporation Commission of 
the State a statement showing the name and residence of each shareholder, the 
number of shares held by each and the taxable value of such shares as fixed 
by the provisions of this act, which statement shall be in writing and sub- 
scribed and sworn to by the president, cashier, or some other officer of the 
bank. For the purpose of aiding the county commissioners and other officers 
in enforcing the law as to the listing of bank shares by the individual share- 
holders for the purpose of county, school, and municipal taxation, it shall be 
the duty of every bank, banking association, or savings institution (whether 
State or National) to furnish to the board of county commissioners of each 
county wherein any of its shareholders reside a statement showing the names 
of all its shareholders resident in such county, with the number of shares 
owned by each, and the taxable value of such shares, ascertained from the 
statement hereinbefore required to be made by such bank, banking association 
or savings institution to the Corporation Commission of the State. It shall 
also be the duty of the Corporation Commission to certify to the board of 
county commissioners of each county wherein any of said shareholders reside 
a statement showing the names of all the shareholders resident in such county, 
with the number of shares owned by each, and the value of such shares as 
ascertained by the statement hereinbefore required to be made by such bank, 
banking association or savings institution to the Corporation Commission of 
the State ; and it shall thereupon be the duty of the chairman and clerk of 
the said board of county commissioners to list said shares of stock, with the 
assessed value thereon, for the purposes of county, school or municipal taxa- 
tion ; and the tax lister for the city or town shall compute the municipal taxes 
thereon : Provided, that no city or town shall assess any bank stock at a 
valuation different from that affixed by the Corporation Commission. The 
residents of this State who are shareholders in any bank, banking association 
or savings institution (whether State or National) shall list the number of 
their respective shares in the county, city or town, precinct or village where 
they reside, for the purposes of county, school and municipal taxation. The 
shares of nonresidents of this State who are shareholders in any bank, bank- 
ing association or savings institution (whether State or National) located in 
this State shall be listed in the county, city, town, precinct or village in which 
such bank, banking association or savings institution is located, for the pur- 
poses of county, school and municipal taxation. All shares, whether owned 
by residents or nonresidents, shall be listed at the time prescribed for listing 
taxes. The county commissioners, assistant assessors and other county and 
municipal officers shall have the same power to enforce the listing of shares 
of stock in any such bank, banking association or savings institution, whether 
held by residents or nonresidents, as they have for enforcing the listing of other 
personal property. The taxation of shares of any such bank, banking associa- 
tion or savings institution shall not be a greater rate than is assessed upon 
other moneyed capital in the hands of individual citizens of this State, whether 
such taxation is for State, county, school or municipal purposes. 
Sec. 43. Reports from corporations. 

Hereafter, except in the case of such corporations as are especially men- 
tioned by name in other sections of this or the Revenue Act and required to

the entire property owned by the said association, company, copartnership or 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 47 

corporation from said statements or otherwise for that purpose, taking the 
aggregate value of all the shares of capital stock, in case shares have a market 
value, and in case they have none, taking the actual value thereof or of the 
capital of said association, company, copartnership or corporation in what- 
ever manner the same is divided, in case no shares of capital stock have heen 
issued : Provided, Jyowever, that in case the whole or any portion of the prop- 
erty of such association, company, copartnership or corporation shall be en- 
cumbered by a mortgage or mortgages, such board shall ascertain the true 
cash value of such property by adding to the market value of the aggregate 
shares of stock or to the value of the capital. In case there should be no 
such shares, the aggregate amounts of such mortgage or mortgages, and the 
result shall be deemed and treated as the true cash value of the property of 
such association, company, copartnership or corporation. Such Board of Cor- 
poration Commissioners shall, for the purpose of ascertaining the true cash 
value of the property within the State of North Carolina, next ascertain from 
such statements or otherwise the assessed value for taxation, in the localities 
where the same is situated, of the several pieces of real estate situated within 
the State of North Carolina and not specifically used in the general business 
of such associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations, which said 
assessed value for taxation shall be by said board deducted from the gross 
value of the property as above ascertained. Said State Board of Corporation 
Commissioners shall next ascertain and assess the true cash value of the 
property of the associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations within 
the State of North Carolina by taking as a guide, as far as practicable, the 
proportion of the whole aggregate value of said associations, companies, copart- 
nerships or corporations as above ascertained, after deducting the assessed 
value of such real estate without the State which the length of lines of said 
associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations, in the case of tele- 
graph and telephone companies within the State of North Carolina, bears to 
the total length thereof, and in the case of express companies and sleeping-car 
companies the proportion shall be the proportion of the whole aggregate value, 
after such deduction, which the length of the lines or routes within the State 
of North Carolina bears to the whole length of lines or routes of such associa- 
tions, companies, copartnerships or corporations, and such amount so ascer- 
tained shall be deemed and held as the entire value of the property of said 
associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations within the State of 
North Carolina. The Corporation Commission shall also assess the value for 
taxation of all real estate, structures, machinery and appliances of telegraph 
and telephone companies within the State subject to local taxation, and this 
local assessment of telegraph companies, together with the franchise value, 
shall be certified by the Commission to the counties and municipalities where 
located on basis of wire mileage in such county or town in which such prop- 
erty is situated. From the entire value of the property within the State so 
ascertained there shall be deducted by the commissioners the assessed value 
for taxation of all real estate, structures, machinery and appliances within 
the State and subject to local taxation in the counties as hereinbefore de- 
scribed in sections forty-nine, fifty and fifty-three of this act, and the residue 
of such value so ascertained, after deducting therefrom the assessed value of 
such local properties, shall be by said board assessed to said association. 



48 ST. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

Sec. 57. Value per mile. 

Said Corporation Commission shall thereupon ascertain the value per mile 
of the property within the State by dividing the total value as above ascer- 
tained, after deducting the specific properties locally assessed within the State 
by the number of miles within the State, and the result shall be deemed and 
held as value per mile of the property of such association, company, copart- 
nership or corporation within the State of North Carolina. 
Sec. 58. Total value for each county. 

Said Corporation Commission shall thereupon, for the purpose of determin- 
ing what amount shall be assessed by it to said association, company, copart- 
nership or corporation in each county in the State, through, across and into 
or over which the line of said association, company, copartnership or corpora- 
tion extends, multiply the value per mile, as above ascertained, by the num- 
ber of miles in each such counties as reported in said statements or as other- 
wise ascertained, and the result thereof shall be by the clerk of said board 
certified to the chairman of the board of county commissioners, respectively, 
of the several counties through, into, over or across which the lines or routes 
of said association, company, copartnership or corporation extends. All taxes 
due the State from any corporation taxed under the preceding sections, except 
the tax paid for school purposes, shall be paid by the treasurer of each com- 
pany direct to the State Treasurer. 
Sec 59. Companies failing to pay tax. 

In case any such association, company, copartnership or corporation as 
named in this act shall fail or refuse to pay any taxes assessed against it in 
any county in this State, in addition to other remedies provided by law for 
the collection of taxes, an action may be prosecuted in the name of the State 
of North Carolina by the solicitors of the different judicial districts of the 
State on the relation of the county commissioners of the different counties of 
this State, and the judgment in the said action shall include a penalty of fifty 
per cent of the amount of taxes as assessed and unpaid, together with rea- 
sonable attorneys' fees for the institution of such action, which action may 
be prosecuted in any county into, through, over or across which the line or 
routes of any association, company, copartnership or corporation shall extend, 
or in any county where such association, company, copartnership or corpora- 
tion shall have an office or agent for the transaction of business. In case 
such association, company, copartnership or corporation shall have refused to 
pay the whole of the taxes assessed against the same by the Corporation Com- 
mission, or in case such association, company, copartnership or corporation 
shall have refused to pay the taxes or any portion thereof assessed to it in 
any particular county or counties, such action may include the whole or any 
portion of the taxes so unpaid in any county or counties; but the Attorney- 
General may, at his option, unite in one action the entire amount of the tax 
due, or may bring separate actions to each separate county or adjoining coun- 
ties, as he may prefer. All collections of taxes for or on account of any par- 
ticular county made in any such suit or suits shall be by said board accounted 
for as a credit to the respective counties for or on account of which such col- 
lections were made by the said board at the next ensuing settlement with such 
county, but the penalty so collected shall be credited to the general fund of 
the State ; and upon such settlement being made, the treasurers of the several 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 49 

comities shall at their next settlements enter credits upon the proper dupli- 
cates in their offices, and at the next settlement with such county report the 
amount so received by him in his settlement with the State, and proper entries

mission, shall be listed for purposes of local taxation by the principal officers 
or agents of such companies with the list takers of ttie county where the real 
and personal property may be situated, in the manner provided by law for 
the listing and valuation of real and personal property. A list of such prop- 
erty shall be filed by such company with the Corporation. Commission. It shall 
be the duty of the register of deeds, if requested so to do by the Corporation 
Commission, to certify and send to the said Commission a statement giving a

value of the property of such railroad company as arrived at by the Commis- 
sion, in accordance with section sixty-three, before the apportionment is made 
to the counties and municipalities. The registers of deeds shall also certify 
to the Commission the local rate of taxation for county purposes as soon as

of the year of which the return is made. 
Sec 63. Tangible and intangible property assessed separately. 

(a) At such dates as real estate is, required to be assessed for taxation, the 
said Commission shall first determine the value of the tangible property of 
each division or branch of such railroad, of rolling stock and all other physical 
or tangible property. This value shall be determined by a due consideration 
of the actual cost of replacing the property, with a just allowance for depre- 
ciation on rolling stock, and also of other conditions, to be considered as in 
the case of private property. 

(b) They shall then' assess the value of the franchise, which shall be deter- 
mined by due consideration of the gross earnings as compared with the 
operating expenses, and particularly by consideration of the value placed 
upon the whole property by the public (the value of the physical property 
being deducted), as evidenced by the market value of all capital stock, certifi- 
cates of indebtedness, bonds or any other securities, the value of which is 
based upon the earning capacity of the property. 

(c) The aggregate value of the physical or tangible property and the fran- 
chise as thus determined shall be the true value of the property for the pur- 
pose of an ad valorem taxation, and shall be apportioned in the same propor- 
tion that the length of such road in each county bears to the entire length of 
such division or branch thereof; and the Corporation Commission shall certify, 
on or before the fifteenth day of September, to the chairman of the county 
commissioners and the mayor of each city or incorporated town 4he amount 
apportioned to his county, city or town ; and the said Commission shall make

and upon failure to pay the State Treasurer as aforesaid, he shall institute an 
action to enforce the same in the county of Wake or any other county in 
which such railroad is located, adding thereto twenty-five per centum of the

railroad passes shall assess against the same only the tax imposed by the 
State for school purposes and those imposed for county purposes. 
Sfec. 64. Railroads. 

When any railroad has part of its road in this State and part thereof in 
any other State, the said Commission shall ascertain the value of railroad 
track, rolling stock and all other property liable to assessment by the Corpora- 
tion Commission of such company as provided in the next preceding section, 
and divide it in the proportion to the length such main line of road in this 
State bears to the whole length of such main line of road, and determine the 
value in this State accordingly. On or after the first Monday in July, the 
said Commission shall give a hearing to all the companies interested touching 
the valuation and assessment of their property. The said Commission may, 
if they see fit, require all argument and communications to be presented in 
writing.

be the owner or possessor of any property in this State other than which it 
derives from the lessor or company whose property is operated, it shall be 
assessed in respect to such property in like manner as any domestic railroad. 
Sec. 66. Railroads. 

The Corporation Commission shall have power to summon and examine 
witnesses and require that books and papers shall be presented to them for 
the purpose of obtaining such information as may be necessary to aid in 
determining the valuation of any railroad company. Any president, secretary, 
receiver or accounting officer, servant or agent of any railroad or steamboat 
company having any portion of its property or roadway in this State who 
shall refuse to attend before the said Commission when required to do so, or 
refuse to submit to the inspection of said commissioners any books or papers 
of such railroad company in his possession, custody or control, or shall refuse 
to answer such questions as may be put to him by said Commission, or order, 
touching the business or property, moneys and credits, and the value thereof, 
of said railroad company, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction 
thereof before any court of competent jurisdiction shall be confined in the 
jail of the county not exceeding thirty days and shall be fined in any sum 
not exceeding five hundred dollars and costs; and any president, secretary, 
accounting officer, servant or agent aforesaid, so refusing as aforesaid shall

rately, .in the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the several 
carriers or lines. Persons or carriers not parties may apply, in any pending 
case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be heard upon the questions 
involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 

Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints, made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances must plainly and distinctly set forth th,e grounds of complaint, the 
items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like manner 
all defenses must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items numbered as 
above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defense, may be 
accompanied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, or by any 
suggestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be verified by the affi- 
davit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any person author- 
ized to administer oaths in North Carolina, and when the complaint or petition 
is verified, then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the verification shall 
conform to the rules prescribed in The Code of North Carolina for the verifi- 
cation of pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person or by attorney, 
or by written argument, upon such written statement being first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 
complainant notice for a hearing of the case on the complaint ; and in case of 
the service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as 
admitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with the court. 
The filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of 
the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the 
hearing. 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 65 

Service of Papees. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite par- 
ties to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have 
appeared by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper 
service upon the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten 
days after such notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief 
demanded. 

Amendments. / 

G. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed 
by the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in 
any proceeding before the Commission. 

Adjournment and Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application 
of parties in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, 
duly signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or 
any portion of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which 
agreed statement shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that 
the facts be thus agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign a 
time and place for hearing the same, which will be at its office in Raleigh, 
N. C, at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be 
examined orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed 
upon as otherwise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant 
must in all cases prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a viola- 
tion of the act, unless the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall 
fail to answer the complaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved 
by the carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to 
answer, the court will take such proof of the charge as may be deemed rea- 
sonable and proper, and make such order thereon as the circumstances of the 
case appear to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any 
member of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will 
be required to obey the subpoena served upon them requiring their attendance 
or the production of any books, papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements or docu- 
ments relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court. 
When a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or other docu- 
mentary evidence, special application must be made to the court therefor, 
specifying the documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on peti- 
tion and answer, each party may proceed at once to take depositions of wit- 

I — Corp. Com. — 5

nesses in tbe manner provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Carolina, 
and transmit them to the secretary of the Commission without making any 
application to or obtaining any authority from the court for that purpose. 

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may sub- 
mit proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings 
must embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established 

by the testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail 
statement of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such 
forms as may be prescribed from time to time by the court. 

RULES GOVERNING TRANSPORTATION OF PASSENGERS. 

1. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the Corporation 
Commission shall provide such means or appliances as may be necessary to 
secure the careful handling of and to prevent injury to any parcel of baggage 
to which a check may be affixed, as provided by law. That at all minor sta- 
tions, where no proper appliances are supplied and no regular depot hand is 
employed, the train hands shall be required to assist the baggage-master, and 
lift with care all baggage from the car doors. 

2. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell cord, shall place a 
safety cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through 
the entire length of the same. 

3. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of 
passengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience of 
passengers desiring to enter. 

4. It shall be the duty of every railway company operating a railroad in 
this State to place a bulletin board in a conspicuous place at each of its ticket 
offices, upon which shall be bulletined the time that each train, upon which 
passengers are hauled, is due to arrive and depart under its published sched- 
ule. It shall also be the duty of each railway company, at each telegraph 
station upon its line, thirty (30) minutes before the time that its said trains 
are due to arrive at such station, to bulletin the fact upon said board as to 
whether said train is on time or not, and if behind schedule time, to state, as 
nearly as can be approximated, the time it is behind ; and, whenever there is 
any indefinite delay of any passenger train, it shall be the duty of the rail- 
road company to cause to be bulletined at all of such stations the cause of 
such delay, and the probable continuation thereof, and the passengers aboard 
such train shall also be informed of the probable delay ; it shall also be the 
duty of the railroad company to cause its bulletins of all delayed trains to 
be corrected from time to time as the entries thereon can be ascertained by 
them to be incorrect. (Circular No. 79.) 

Checking Baggage on Mileage Book Before Exchange for Ticket. Condi- 
tions upon which baggage may be checked upon presentation of mileage 
books : By virtue of a supplemental act of the General Assembly of 1911, 
ratified on the 8th day of March, 1911 : 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. G7 

(a) When passengers desire to exercise the privilege of checking baggage 
upon mileage books, railroad companies shall not be required to check the 
baggage unless the mileage book and the baggage are each the property of 
the person for whom the baggage is to be checked. 

(6) That when baggage is checked upon mileage book before coupons have 
been exchanged for a ticket, the baggage" agent shall tear off the baggage strip 
for the distance baggage is checked, and shall mark or stamp date of issue 
and destination to which baggage is checked on the face or back of such part 
of mileage coupons as correspond with baggage coupons detached. 

(c) The passenger may at any time within twenty-four hours thereafter 
present to the ticket agent this particular mileage book and obtain mileage 
exchange ticket, which ticket shall read to the destination to which baggage 
was checked. 

Failure to present and obtain from the ticket agent a ticket in exchange for 
said marked or stamped mileage coupons within twenty-four hours shall 
cause a forfeiture of that part of the mileage coupons from which the bag- 
gage strip is detached, and the railroad company may refuse to take same in 
exchange for mileage exchange tickets. 

Effective May 1, 1911. 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads which are under the management and control, 
by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for pur- 
poses of transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting 
but one and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of 
one and the same road, unless otherwise specified. 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain what shall be the 
limits of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been 
fixed as the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one 
hundred miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. 
The commissioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme 
cases which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of 
our rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration : For a distance 
of twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty- 
eight miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, 
if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above shall 
govern the rate. Illustration : For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge 
for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a 
reduction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short 
of two hundred and fifty miles : Provided, however, that when any railroad 



68 2ST. C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION. 

shall make a reduction of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty 
miles, the same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by 
the same company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a 
greater distance. 

Regulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

G. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum rates, 
which shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may carry, however, 
at less than the prescribed rates : Provided, that if they carry for less for 
one person, they shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for 
all persons except as mentioned hereafter : and if they adopt less freight 
rates from one station, they shall make a reduction of the same per cent at 
all stations along the line of the road, so as to make no unjust discrimination 
as against any person or locality. But when there are between any two 
points in this State two or more competing roads not under the same manage- 
ment or in the same system, then the longer line or lines, in order to give said 
points the benefit of competition, may reduce the rates between said two 
points below the standard tariff, without making a corresponding reduction 
at all stations along the lines of said roads : Provided, said reduction shall 
not make the rates less than the standard tariff rates for the shortest line 
between said points: Provided further, that before taking effect the pro- 
posed change of rates shall be submitted to and approved by the Commission. 
When any special rate is made it shall be submitted to the Commission for 
approval, and such special rates shall not be withdrawn without thirty days' 
notice to the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express or 
other company, decline or refuse to act as a common carrier, to transport any 
article proper for transportation by the train for which it is offered. 

9. Minimum charge for single shipments. See Circular No. 30. 

10. No railroad company doing business within this State shall permit a 
blockade of any class of freight on account of any arrangement existing 
between it and other railroad companies as to the transportation of freight 
according to percentage or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any bonus be given, 
or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall be uniform to all, and 
public. 

12. The rates specified for ores, sand, clay, rough stone, common brick, bone, 
lumber, shingles, laths, staves, empty barrels, wood, straw, shucks, hay, fod- 
der, corn in ear, tan-bark, turpentine, rosin, tar, household goods, are maxi- 
mum rates, but the roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all 
such rates are exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to 
such rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car-load ship- 
ments of classes L, M, N, O, and F, or to load car-load shipments of naval 
stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid by shippers.

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments exceed the 
charge per car-load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other mer- 
chandise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in good ship- 
ping condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper packing and legible, 
plain marking, and accompanied, with orders for immediate shipping. 

19. Car-load rates apply to a shipment of a car-load or more made by one 
shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of delivery, to the same con- 
signee. 

Estimated Weights. 

20. Lumber, coal, lime, brick, stone, and all articles for which estimated 
weights are given in classification (except live stock, ale and beer, and empty 
ale and beer packages, L. C. L.) will be taken at actual weight when the 
weight can be ascertained, but when the weight cannot be ascertained, w T ill 
be charged at the following estimated weights. This is not to interfere, how- 
ever, with the duty of receiving agent to weigh, if possible, and correct to 
actual weight :

<U N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a per- 
centage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard 
tariff shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification ; but in 
cases in which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, railroad 
companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not apply 
said increase to the already increased classification, but only to the standard 
tariff. 

22. When any article is too bulky to put in a box car, it shall be subject to 
charge for minimum weight of 4,000 pounds, and at first class. (Circular 148.) 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car-load is 20,000 pounds unless 
otherwise specified. For loads above 20,000 pounds, \wo rata at car-load rates 
charged. A car-load of green wood is eight cords. A car-load of dry wood is

24. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this State must 
be kept open each day (Sundays excepted) for the receiving and delivery of 
freight, as follows : From April 1 to September 30, between the hours of 7 
A. M. and 6 P. M. From October 1 to March 31, 7 :30 A. M. and 5 o'clock P. M., 
with an intermission in each case of one hour, from 12 o'clock M. to 1 o'clock 
P. M. 

25. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in length may 
charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed for ten miles. Abro- 
gated. See Laws 1907, c. 217. 

26. Deduction for joint haul. (See statute.) 

27. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the railroads 
may reduce their rates between points so affected without being required to 
reduce intermediate rates : Provided, however, that if complaint is made that 
such competition rates unjustly discriminate against other places or persons 
the commissioners will investigate and rule in each case. 

28. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding the same to its 
destination. 

29. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate 
charged over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless 
otherwise ordered by the shipper. 

30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switch r 
ing or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting road 
or warehouse within a space of one mile from starting point ; over one and 
not more than two miles, three dollars ; over two miles and not over three 
miles, four dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass

three or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between 
the roads at interest. 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 71 

32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said 
points no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the 
empty cars. 

33. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the 
law preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 

Posting Tariffs. 

34. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a con- 
spicuous place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates pre- 
scribed for said road by the Commission, together with a copy of the commis- 
sioners' classification, and a table of distances between stations, giving name 
of each station. And when any change in said schedule of rates or classifica- 
tion is made, either by the Commission or by any railroad company, a copy 
of said change shall be immediately furnished the office of the commissioners 
and shall also be posted in the same manner as the above. 

35. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases specified) 
apply in either direction. 

36. An allowance of 500 pounds per car will be made for weight of stand- 
ards, strips and supports of car-load shipments of lumber loaded on flat or 
gondola cars, but in no case must less than the minimum car-load weight 
specified in tariffs be charged for on each car. In computing freight charges 
under this rule, agents will deduct 500 pounds from the gross weight of each 
car-load, then subtract the tare weight (the weight of car), and extend freight 
charges on basis of remainder, which is the net weight, subject to the mini- 
mum car-load weight specified in tariffs. (Circular No. 58.) 

37. Shipments of freight, except articles classified first-class or higher, 
which are not delivered at destination, shall be returned between points in 
this State at one-half the rates applying to the reverse direction : Provided, 
that the full amount of freight charges in both directions shall have been paid 
or guaranteed by owners : Provided further, that such return is made within 
ninety days of arrival at destination. Billing for the return shipment must 
show proper reference to the original billing. The foregoing shall not apply 
on machinery, agricultural implements, or other articles returned for repairs : 
Provided, however, that the above rule shall not operate to reduce the mini- 
mum charge on single shipments. (Circular No. 59.) 

EXPLANATORY NOTES. 

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite 
to the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater dis- 
tance), will be found the rate required. 

Example : To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word "clothing" in the classification is seen its class, 1 ; 
in the freight tariff, under Class 1, opposite the next greater distance, 250 
miles, is seen the rate, 65 cents ; in the column "miles," 5 signifies five miles 
or under ; 20, twenty miles or over fifteen, and so on.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by a 
per cent, the following rules must be observed : 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C. D, F, J. 
or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the following examples 
will indicate : 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent added 1.6 



Total 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 9.5 

20 per cent added 1.9 



Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3.— Standard rate : 8. 

20 per cent added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent added 1.3 



Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 
Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus : 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate IT. 

20 per cent added 3.4 



Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2 — Standard rate 18. 

20 per cent added 3.6 

Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 



RULES OF PRACTICE BEFORE THE COMMISSION. 



73 



Third. — In making reduction, observe the same manner of placing figures 
before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change of 
freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor 
the suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights 
from stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the con- 
sent of this Commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of depot 
buildings must be filed in the North Carolina Corporation Commission office, 
with all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all interests 
to be affected thereby. 



RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION 

OF LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply 
to get the rating on live stock. To illustrate: One horse, mule or horned ani- 
mal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second-class 
freight at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the 
freight charges for fifty miles on one horse, mule or horned animal is the same 
as on 2,000 pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the 
standard tariff, carriers' risk, 28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5, and at owner's 
risk, 20 cents per 100 pounds, or $4. 



Each. 

2,000 lbs. 

3,500 lbs. 



One horse, mule or horned animal .__ 
Two horses, mules or horned animals, 
Each additional horse, mule or horned 

animal 1,000 lbs. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls 3,000 lbs. 

Yearling cattle 1,000 lbs. 

Calves and sheep 175 lbs. 



Calves and sheep, in lots of — or more,

The rates on live stock as given in this tariff are based on the following 
maximum valuations : 

• Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls not over 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hogs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each.

STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES 

ADOPTED BY THE CORPORATION COMMISSION 

WITH 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS APPROVED BY THE COMMISSION, 
AS AMENDED TO JANUARY 1, 1912. 



DEMURRAGE RULES. 
RULE I. 

Cars Subject to Rules. 

Cars held for or by consignors or consignees for loading, unloading, forward- 
ing directions, or for any other purpose, are subject to these Demurrage Rules, 
except as follows : 

(a) Cars loaded with live stock. 

(&) Empty cars placed for loading coal at mines or mine sidings, or coke at 
coke ovens. 

(c) Empty private cars stored on carrier's or private tracks, provided such 
cars have not been placed or tendered for loading on the orders of a shipper. 

Note. — Private cars while in railroad service, whether on carrier's or private 
tracks, are subject to these Demurrage Rules to the same extent as cars of railroad 
ownership. 

(Empty private cars are in railroad service from the time they are placed by the 
carrier for loading - or tendered for loading on the orders of a shipper. Private cars 
under lading are in railroad service until the lading is removed and cars are regu- 
larly released. Cars which belong to an industry performing its own switching 
service are in railroad service from the time they are placed by the industry upon 
designated interchange tracks and thereby tendered to the carrier for movement.' 
If such cars are subsequently returned empty, they are out of service when with- 
drawn by the industry from the interchange; if returned under load, railroad service 
is not at an end until the lading is duly removed.) 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

Cars loaded with company material for use of and consigned to the railroad in 
whose possession the cars are held are not subject to demurrage, and shall not be 
reported by agents unless specifically instructed so to do. 

Empty cars placed for loading with company material are subject to demurrage, 
unless the loading is done by the railroad company for which the material is 
intended and on its tracks. 

(a) Empty cars placed for loading live stock by shippers are not exempt and 
should be reported. 

Live poultry is not considered as live stock, and cars so loaded are subject to 
demurrage. 

(c) Empty private cars stored on tracks switched by carriers, taken for loading 
without order or requisition from shipper, and without formal assignment by car- 
rier's agent, shall be recorded as placed for loading when actual loading is begun. 

Note. — Private cars belonging to an industry which does its own switching, placed 
upon an interchange track for forwarding and refused by the carrier's inspector, 
shall be released from demurrage if withdrawn by the industry from the interchange 
track within twenty-four (24) hours after rejection. 

Private cars are not in railroad service — ■ 

(a) When loaded and unloaded on the tracks of the owner and not moved over 
the tracks of a carrier; 

(f>) When placed by the carrier for loading on the tracks of the owner and 
refused by the inspector. 

RULE II. 

Free Time Allowed. 

(a) Forty-eight hours (two days) free time will be allowed for loading or 
unloading on all commodities. 

(&) Twenty-four hours (one day) free time will be allowed — 
1. When cars are held for reconsignment or switching orders. 



7G N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

2. When cars destined for delivery to or for forwarding by a connecting line 
are held for surrender of bill of lading or for payment of lawful freight 
charges. 

3. When cars are held in transit and placed for inspection or grading. 

(c) Cars containing freight for transhipment to vessel will be allowed such 
free time at the ports as may be provided in the tariffs of the carriers. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

(a) When the same car is both unloaded and reloaded, each transaction will be 
treated as independent of the other. 

(b) 1. Applies to cars held on carrier line for disposition. A change of consignee 
after arrival of car at destination is not a reconsignment under these rules unless 
a switching movement covered by a tariff is involved. It also includes cars held in 
transit for reconsignment, (See also (&) 3.) 

It also applies to cars held on the carrier line within a switching district con- 
signed to a point on a switching line within such district which cannot be received 
on account of disability of the consignee. The carrier line must in all cases give 
notice in writing to the consignee of all cars so held. Time will be computed in 
accordance with Rule 3 (6). 

(ft) 3. See last paragraph of instruction to Rule 4. — Notification. 

RULE III. 

Computing Time. 

Note. — In computing time Sundays and legal holidays (National, State and 
municipal) will be excluded. When a legal holiday falls on a Sunday, the fol- 
lowing Monday will be excluded. 

The following are Legal Holidays in the State of North Carolina: January 1st; 
January 19th; February 22d; April 12th; May 10th; May 20th; July 4th; First 
Monday in September; Thanksgiving Day; and December 25th. 

( a ) On cars held for loading, time will be computed from the first 7 : 00 
a. m. after placement on public-delivery tracks. 

(&) On cars held for orders, time will be computed from the first 7 : 00 a. m. 
after the day on which notice of arrival is sent to consignee. On cars held 
for unloading, time will be computed from the first 7 : 00 a. m. after placement 
on public-delivery tracks and after the day on which notice of arrival is sent 
to consignee. 

(c) On cars containing freight in bond, time will be computed from the first 
7 : 00 a. m. after permit to receive goods is issued to consignees by United 
States Collector of Customs. 

(d) On cars containing freight subject to State inspection, time will be 
computed from the first 7 : 00 a. m. after inspection by State officials. 

(e) On cars to be delivered on any other than public-delivery tracks, time 
will be computed from the first 7 : 00 a. m. after actual or constructive place- 
ment on such tracks. See Rule 4 (Notification) and Rules 5 and 6 (Con- 
structive placement ) . 

(f) On cars to be delivered on interchange tracks of industrial plants per- 
forming their own switching service, time will be computed from the first 7 : 00 
a. m. following actual or constructive placement on such interchange tracks 
until return thereto. See Rule 4 (Notification) and Rules 5 and 6 (Construc- 
tive placement). Cars returned loaded will not be recorded released until 
necessary billing instructions are given. 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES. 77 



INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

Note. — The exemption of holidays does not include half holidays. 

(6) When orders for cars held for disposition or reconsignment are mailed, such 
orders will release cars at 7: 00 a. m. of the date orders are received at the station 
where the freight is held, provided the orders are mailed prior to the date received. 
but orders mailed and received on the same date release cars the following 7: 00 
a. m. Agents will in all cases attach to orders received by mail the envelope 
enclosing such orders, that there may be on file a record of release. 

RULE IV. 

Notification. 

(a) Consignee shall be notified by carrier's agent in writing, or as other- 
wise agreed to by carrier and consignee, within twenty-four hours after arrival 
of cars and billing at destination, such notice to contain point of shipment, car 
initials and numbers, and the contents, and, if transferred in transit, the 
initials and number of the original car. In case car is not placed on public- 
delivery track within twenty-four hours after notice of arrival has been sent, a 
notice of placement shall be given to consignee. 

(&) When cars are ordered stopped in transit, the party ordering the cars 
stopped shall be notified upon arrival of cars at point of stoppage. 

(c) Delivery of cars upon private or industrial interchange tracks, or writ- 
ten notice to consignee of readiness to so deliver, will constitute notification 
thereof to consignee. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

Agents are cautioned that, in order to be legal, notices of the arrival of cars 
must be in writing, and must contain all of the items of information specified by 
this rule. An impression copy should be retained, and when notice is given on a 
postal card the impression should be of both sides. If delivered by messenger, a 
receipt should be taken for the notice when practicable, in order to avoid possibili- 
ties of dispute. 

In many cases it is desirable for both consignee and carrier that notices be given 
in some other way, especially by telephone, but such notices are not legal under 
this rule except when "agreed to by carrier and consignee." In case consignees 
desire or will accept some notice other than the written notice, agents will require 
a written request from them to that effect, and this request, agreed to by the agent, 
must be retained on file in order to legalize the notice. Where the telephone 
form of notice is adopted, the agent should require the name of the receiver of 
the message when the notice is given. In the absence of specific agreements to 
the contrary, however, agents must not fail to give the regular written notice 
required by this rule. 

Attention is also directed to the fact that when cars are for delivery to public- 
team tracks, and placement is delayed for more than twenty-four (24) hours after 
notice of arrival is given, the notice of arrival is not a legal basis for assessment 
of demurrage for delay after placement. In such cases a notice of placement 
must also be given to the consignee, and the free time for unloading computed 
according to the notice of placement. 

At stations where grain and hay must be inspected or graded, cars being 
handled under Rule 2, paragraph (b) 3, the consignee agreeing with the carrier 
in writing, for file at the station, to accept the bulletining of the car as due and 
adequate notice of arrival, the bulletins must be posted by 9: 00 a. m. of each day, 
showing the previous twenty-four (24) hours' receipts, and the free time (twenty- 
four (24) hours allowed) is to be calculated from the first 7: 00 a. m. thereafter. 
Where there is no agreement for bulletining of cars, the free time must be calcu- 
lated from the first 7: 00 a. m. after the day on which notice of arrival is sent to 
the consignee. 



To E". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

RULE V. 

Placing Cars for Unloading. 

(a) When delivery of cars consigned or ordered to private or industrial 
interchange tracks cannot be made, on account of the act or neglect of the 
consignee, or the inability of the consignee to receive, delivery will be con- 
sidered to have been made when the cars were tendered. The carrier's agent 
must give the consignee written notice of all cars he has been unable to 
deliver because of the condition of the private or interchange tracks or because 
of other conditions attributable to consignee. This will be considered con- 
structive placement. See Rule 4 (Notification). 

(b) When delivery cannot be made on specially designated public-delivery 
tracks, on account of such tracks being fully occupied, or from other cause 
beyond the control of the carrier, the delivery will be made at the nearest 
available point accessible to the consignee and the consignee so notified. 

RULE YI. 
Cars for Loading. 

(a) Cars for loading will be considered placed when such cars are actually 
placed or held on orders of the consignor. In the latter case the agent must 
give the consignor written notice of all cars which he has been unable to place 
because of condition of the private track or because of other conditions attribu- 
table to the consignor. This will be considered constructive placement. 

(ft) When empty cars, placed for loading on orders, are not used, demurrage 
will be charged from the first 7 : 00 a. m. after placing or tender until released, 
with no time allowance. 

RULE VII. 

Demurrage Charge. 

After the expiration of the free time allowed, a charge of $1.00 per car per 
day, or fraction of a day, will be made until car is released. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

(a) Charges accruing under these rules must be collected in the same manner 
and with the same regularity and promptness as other transportation charges, and 
agents will in like manner be held responsible for same. 

(&) Freight upon which charges have accrued under these rules shall not be 
removed from railroad premises until charges thereon have been paid. When 
consignor or consignee refuses to pay, agent will hold freight until payment is 
made and continue to charge until freight is removed; or, at his option, may send 
freight to public warehouses or yards, where the same will be held subject to 
storage charges and all other charges. 

(c) When cars are detained on private or specifically designated tracks for 
unloading beyond the time allowed and demurrage charges are not promptly paid, 
agent must, upon advice to that effect from the manager of the demurrage and 
storage department, after giving not less than five (5) days' written notice, decline 
to switch cars to private or specifically designated tracks for such parties, and 
thereafter tender freight from public-team tracks and collect all charges before 
delivery, until satisfactory guaranty is given that demurrage rules will be complied 
with. 

(d) Charges that accrue while cars are held for loading, for receipt of billing 
instructions, or for reconsignment or distribution orders, will be collected by agents 
of the forwarding line when such shipments are ordered to points within the 
switching limits. When charges accrue on shipments ordered or destined to points 



STORAGE AXD DEMURRAGE RULES. 70 



beyond switching limits, such charges should be collected by the agent of the 
forwarding line. Such charges may be billed forward as advances, providing the 
charges are guaranteed in writing and entered on the shipping tickets and bills 
of lading and exhibited on the waybills as "Demurrage Charges, Advanced and 
Guaranteed." 

When demurrage charges accrue on cars held in transit by request of consignor 
or consignee, as agents can neither enter the charges on bills of lading nor obtain 
guarantee from consignor or consignee without unnecessary delay to the cars, the 
charges must either be billed forward as advances or separate bills made and 
charges collected from the party ordering the cars held. 

RULE VIII. 

Claims. 

No demurrage charges shall be assessed under these rules for detention of 
cars through causes named below. If, through error, demurrage charges are 
assessed or collected under such conditions, they shall be promptly canceled or 
refunded by the carrier. 

Causes. 

O) Weather interference. 

1. When the condition of the weather during the prescribed free time is such 
as to make it impossible to employ men or teams in loading or unloading, or 
impossible to place freight in cars, or to move it from cars, without serious 
injury to the freight. 

2. When shipments are frozen so as to prevent unloading during the pre- 
scribed free time, or when, because of high water or snowdrifts, it is impos- 
sible to get to cars for loading or unloading during the prescribed free time. 

(6) Bunching. 

1. Cars for loading. — When, by reason of delay or irregularity of the carrier 
in filling orders, cars are bunched and placed for loading in accumulated num- 
bers in excess of daily orders. The shipper shall be allowed such free time for 
loading as he would have been entitled to had the cars been placed for loading 
as ordered. 

2. Cars for unloading or reconsigning. — When, as a direct result of the act 
or neglect of carriers, cars destined for one consignee, at one point, and trans- 
ported via the same route, are bunched in transit and delivered in accumulated 
numbers in excess of daily shipments, claim to be presented to the carrier's 
agent before the expiration of the free time. The consignee shall be allowed 
such free time as he would have been entitled to had the cars been delivered 
in accordance with the daily rate of shipment. 

(c) Demand of overcharge. 

When the carrier's agent demands the payment of transportation charges 
in excess of tariff authority. 

(cl) Delayed or improper notice by carrier. 

Note. — When notice has been given in substantial compliance with the require- 
ments as specified by the rules, the consignee shall not thereafter have the right 
to call in question the sufficiency of such notice unless within twenty-four hours 
after receiving the same he shall serve upon the delivering carrier a full written 
statement of his objections to the sufficiency of said notice. 

(e) Railroad errors or omissions. 

INSTRUCTIONS AND EXPLANATIONS: 

(a) 1. When a consignor or consignee claims exemption under this rule, agents 
must obtain a written statement from him to the effect that the conditions were 
such as are set forth in the rule. 



80 BT. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

(a) 2. The exemption on account of high water or snowdrifts applies only when 
the point at which car is placed for loading or unloading is accessible to the gen- 
eral public by reason of these conditions. 

(6) 2. When claim is made for exemption from demurrage on account of bunch- 
ing of cars for unloading or reconsigning, as provided in this rule, agents will 
require written statement of all cars transported via the same route, with date 
and point of shipment of each, as evidenced by the bills of lading, if necessary, 
and forward same to the manager of the demurrage and storage department, with 
report showing exemption demanded on account of such bunching. 

(c) and (e). When demurrage should not be collected under these sections, agents 
will make report to the manager of the demurrage and storage department, together 
with copy of billing and all information in their possession, showing where the 
error occurred. 

RULE IX. 

Average Agreement. 

When a shipper or receiver enters into the following agreement, the charge 
for detention to cars, provided for by Rule 7, on all cars held for loading or 
unloading by such shipper or receiver shall be computed on the basis of the 
average time of detention to all such cars during each calendar month, such 
average detention to be computed as follows : 

(a) A credit of one day will be allowed for each car released within the 
first twenty-four hours of free time. A debit of one day will be charged for 
each twenty-four hours or fraction thereof that a car is detained beyond the 
first forty-eight hours of free time. In no case shall more than one day's credit 
be allowed on any one car, and in no case shall more than seven (7) days' 
credits be applied in cancellation of debits accruing on any one car. 

(&) At the end of the calendar month the total number of days credited 
will be deducted from the total number of days debited, and $1.00 per day 
charged for the remainder. If the credits equal or exceed the debits, no 
charge will be made for the detention of the cars, and no payment will be 
made to shippers or receivers on account of such excess of credits, nor shall the 
credits in excess of the debits of any one month be considered in computing 
the average detention for another month. 

(c) Credits earned on cars belonging to one class of equipment shall not be 
used in offsetting debits accruing on cars belonging to a different class of 
equipment. For the purpose of applying this provision, cars shall be deemed 
to consist of two classes: (1) Box cars, including refrigerator cars; (2) 
freight cars of all other descriptions. 

(<J) A shipper or receiver who elects to take advantage of this average 
agreement shall not be entitled to cancellation or refund of demurrage charges 
under sections a and h of Rule 8. 

(c) A shipper or receiver who elects to take advantage of this average agree- 
ment may be required to give sufficient security to the carrier for the payment 
of balances against him at the end of each month.

STORAGE RULES. 

Storage and demurrage may be assessed by railroad companies on all freight 
received for delivery in carload lots or in less than carload lots if not removed 
in conformity with the following rules and regulations : 

RULE 1. 

No storage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed unless notice of the 
arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee thereof by the rail- 
road company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad company to give prompt 
notice to the consignee of the arrival of goods, together with the contents, 
weight and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown by waybill, and 
when goods or freight of any kind, in carload consignments, said notice must 
contain letters or initials and number of the car. Notice shall be given by 
delivering same in writing in person, or by leaving same at consignee's place 
of business or by depositing it in the postoffice. 

RULE 2. 

For storage of package freights and all freight less than carload, unloaded 
in depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the 
custody of the railroad company within forty-eight hours (not including Sun- 
days and legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day 
that such consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent 
per hundred pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one 
package or lot for any one consignee, may be made ; but not more than one 
dollar per day for any one consignment not in excess of a carload. 

EXCEPTION TO RULE 2: 

Free time for storage on account of distance will be allowed as follows: On 
freights destined to the residence or place of business of a consignee from five to 
twelve miles from depot, five (5) days; and for distance over twelve miles seven (7)

the duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or 
persons to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be 
I— Corp. Com.— 6 



82 W. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

addressed by mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and storage will begin 
as in other cases of notice by mail ; and the mailing of such notice shall be 
sufficient notice in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the 
same or not. 

RULE 4. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock a. m. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 

RULE 5. 

Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement 
or rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of 
freight, or where from the nature of the goods removal or loading would cause 
injury or damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no storage 
charges shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to the 
state of the weather during business hours. 

RULE 6. 

Beought Foeward from Cieculae No. 36 as Rule 8. 

When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock a. m. the day 
after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar per 
day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed : Provided, 
the railroad company may require the payment of freight before delivery. 

RULE 7. 

Refusal of Consignee to Accept Shipments of Feeight. 

(Rule 15, Circular No. 115.) 

Where a consignee shall give to the delivering carrier notice of his refusal 
to accept a shipment of freight properly tendered in pursuance of the bill of 
lading, the delivering carrier shall give to the consignor legal notice of such 
refusal, and if the consignor fails within three days thereafter to give direc- 
tion for the disposition of such goods, he shall thenceforth become liable to 
such carrier for the usual storage charges, to the same extent, and at the same 
rate, as such charges are now, under like circumstances, by the rules of this 
Commission, imposed upon consignees who neglect or refuse, after notice of 
arrival, to remove freight of like character. 

And where a consignee of freight either in carloads or less than carloads 
shall fail or neglect to remove such freight within six days after the expiration 
of free time, then the carrier shall, through the agent at point of shipment, 
so notify the shipper, unless the consignee has signified his acceptance of the 
property. Said notice may either be served personally or given by mail. 

No such notice to the consignor, however, shall be required of a carrier 
company where gcods are shipped in less than carload lots, unless such goods, 
or the packages containing the same, or waybill, shall legibly bear the name 
and address of the consignor thereof. 



STORAGE AND DEMURRAGE RULES. 83 

A consignee who has once refused to accept a consignment of goods shall 
not thereafter be entitled to receive the same, except upon the payment of all 
charges for storage which would otherwise have accrued. 

RULE 8. 

The Commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice shall 
demand this course. 



TRANSFER AND SWITCHING RULES. 

Rules 30, 31, and 32 of Rules Governing Transportation of Freight. 

Rule 30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for 
switching or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting 
road or warehouse within a space of one mile from starting point ; over one 
and not more than two miles, three dollars ; over two miles and not over three 
miles, four dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

Rule 31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary 
to pass over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge 
of two, three or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided 
between the roads at interest. 

Rule 32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between 
said points no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the 
empty cars.

the space of two miles beyond the starting point. The railroad company fur- 
nishing the car and performing the initial movement may charge two and one- 
half dollars per car. 

Rule 14. When car is destined to a warehouse on a connecting line which 
requires switching, the company so receiving and delivering may charge $1.50

mum weight of ice and packing

ance shall not be construed as 
permitting any ale, beer, or por- 
ter to be carried free if less than 
4,000 pounds of ice and packing 
be loaded in the car. Ice must 
not be transported free with less 
than car-load shipments of ale, 
beer, and porter. 

Car-load shipments of ale, 
beer, and porter in refrigerator 
cars shall be billed at the ascer- 
tained weight of contents, after 
deducting 4,000 pounds for ice 
and packing (or the actual 
weight of ice and packing if less 
than 4,000 pounds), and at the 
established rates applying on 
ale, beer, and porter in car-loads. 

No claim for reduction, if 
billing made on this basis, shall 
be allowed, unless it can be 
shown that the weights were 
incorrectly taken. 

The following rule will apply 
in ascertaining the weight on 
beer in car-loads containing ice 
or other packing: 

The car of beer shall be 
weighed on track scales at orig- 
inating point, and, when iced 
in transit, also at destination. 
The weight of the beer shall be 
ascertained by taking a count 
of the packages contained in

Rules governing transportation of high explosives: 

High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial, aetna, hecla, and other nitro- 
glycerine powders; dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der mixed with any such oil, or fiber saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad com- 
panies' option, only under the following conditions: 

First. — Shipments to be packed in strong boxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive," 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second. — It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fiber, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 
the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of nitro- 
glycerine is greater than the absorbent can carry, the 
packages must be refused in every instance, and must 
not be allowed to remain on the property of the car- 
rier. 

Third. — Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with the above specifications (ex- 
cept ordinary black powder) will in no case be received 
for shipment. 

Fourth. — Shipments must be so loaded that boxes 
will lie bottom side down, it being understood that 
the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that they 
will lie on their sides and never on their ends when 
so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car that 
they cannot fall to the floor under any circumstances. 

Fifth. — Shipments of common black powder may 
be received if packed in good, substantial iron or 
wooden kegs, packages not to exceed 150 pounds in 
weight, unless for export, when larger packages will 
be received. 

Sixth. — In no case will percussion caps, explod- 
ers, safety squibs, fulminators, friction matches, or 
any other articles of like nature be loaded in same 
car with any of the above explosives. There cannot 
be too great care exercised in this matter. 



Seventh. — Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered, and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth. — As special powder cars are not in gen- 
eral service among roads, agents must know that none 
of the above explosive substances are loaded at their 
stations in old cars, having loose boards or cracks in 
the roof or sides. Cars for carrying these explosives 
must be first-class in every respect; must be tight 
everywhere, and must have doors that can be closely 
shut, leaving no cracks for sparks to get in. When 
explosives are carried in full car-loads, the doors must 
be stripped, except when the cars are equipped with 
the new Wagner car doors, which must never be 
stripped. Agents must refuse to receive from con- 
necting lines cars loaded with explosives, unless the 
requirements of this section have been complied with. 

Ninth. — Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, must be plainly marked on both sides, 
"Powder — Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to incur 
danger. This should be done by the shipper of full 
car-loads, and by the agent when packages are loaded 
in car at his station. Cars containing explosives re- 
ceived from connecting lines, if not marked when 
received, must be marked by the agent at the con- 
necting point. Agents will be held strictly responsi- 
ble that no car containing explosives leaves their 
stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth.— Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substances unless rules Eight and Nine have 
been complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh. — Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of the requirements. 

Twelfth. — The law provides heavy penalties, 
both to shippers and common carriers, for a viola- 
tion of these rules, and agents and shippers should 
be careful to see that such shipments are put up, 
marked, and forwarded only under their proper names 
and in accordance with these provisions.

Transit. 

Shippers will not be permitted to unload and dis- 
pose of any portion of car-load shipments of live stock 
en route, except upon payment of the less than car- 
load rate upon the portion so unloaded. In order to 
be entitled to the car-load rate the number and kind 
as way-billed must go through to destination. 

Maximum Valuations of Live Stock 
Shipments. 

Horses and mules, each % 75.00 

Mare and colt, together 100.00 

Jacks or stallions, each 150.00 

Cow and calf, together 35.00

Free Transportation of Attendants in 
Charge of Live Stock. 

(The following rules are applicable as well to local 
live-stock traffic as to competitive traffic.) 

Persons in charge of live stock may be carried free 
at the option of the railroad company on passenger 



trains immediately preceding or following the ship- 
ment of stock or on the same train with the stock, 
as follows: 

One man to pass free with one or two cars; two men 
to pass free with three or four cars; three men to pass 
free with five to seven cars; four men to pass free with 
eight or more cars; which last is the maximum num- 
ber of persons that will be passed free on any train 
with live stock from one shipper to one consignee and 
destination. 

All persons thus passed are at their own risk of 
personal injury from any cause whatever, and the 
railroad company will not be responsible for any loss 
of their personal effects. 

Full rates will be charged for one or more attend- 
ants with live-stock shipments in L. C. L. quantities 
and for extra attendants with car-load shipments. 

No free or reduced transportation will be given 
either to attendants or shippers of live stock except 
as above provided. 

Agents must not issue more than one live-stock 
contract on any consignment of live stock from one 
shipper to one consignee and destination, but must 
enter the description of the entire shipment with car 
numbers on one contract. 

Full fare returning will be charged all attendants 
who have accompanied live-stock shipments.

Note 2.— The weight of contents of tank cars shall 
be computed at 6.6 pounds per gallon. 

Note 3. — The weights on shipments in wood and 
cans shall be computed as follows: 

In wooden barrels, capacity not exceeding 52 gallons, 
410 pounds each. 

In wooden half-barrels, 240 pounds each. 

In square cans, completely cased, each case contain- 
ing 10 gallons, 80 pounds each. 

Mixed car-loads of oil in barrels or cases will be taken 
authorized C. L. rates based on the foregoing weights. 
When less than aforesaid minimum car-loads are ship- 



ped, L. C. L. rates will be charged. In no case, how- 
ever, will less than a car-load from one consignor to 
one consignee and destination on same day be charged 
more than for a full car-load. 

Transportation companies do not furnish tank cars. 
When they are furnished by shippers, transportation 
companies will pay three-fourths cent per mile run 
each way, and will return the empty tank to point of 
shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at the rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss or dam- 
age by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be deliv- 
ered only when consigned to parties at points at which 
they have proper unloading and storage facilities; and 
when shipments in tank cars are consigned to parties 
who have not such facilities the shipment will be re- 
turned to the shippers at their risk and expense.

N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following rules, viz.: 



First. — Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight of 
each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the barrel, 
when shipments are loaded at the mills, agents at ship- 
ping points will require shippers to load marked head 
up, ascertaining the gross weight from each barrel and 
billing accordingly. 

Second. — In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill at 
weight so ascertained. 

Third. — When shipments are hauled to depot, the 
gross weight must be ascertained from each barrel. 



Fourth. — In cases where billing fails to show ship- 
ments to have been weighed at point of origin or in 
transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at weights 
ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By des- 
tination is meant the point where final delivery is ef- 
fected or delivery is made to connecting lines at the 
gateways of this association. 

Fifth. — The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

SCALE M. 

Eggs in cases. When quoting rates on eggs in cases, 
agents must name the rate per case, as shown by the 
following table, instead of the rate per 100 pounds. 
Cases of a greater or less capacity must be charged for 
in the same proportion; cases must be charged for on 
the basis of their ordinary capacity when filled; when 
by the use of the new style egg-filler a greater number 
of eggs is packed in a case than it would ordinarily 
hold, charges must be based on the actual number of 
eggs in the case— shippers must mark cases to denote 
the number of dozens therein; cases must never be 
charged for at less than their full capacity. When the 
rate per 100 pounds is not given, charge in proportion. 
Minimum 35 cents per shipment, unless the graduate 
under the merchandise rate is less; when carried by 
more than one company, minimum 25 cents for each 
company carrying. 

When other packages of General Special matter are 
shipped with cases of eggs, the charges must be aggre- 
gated. 



Exception. — Crates containing 15 "one-pound" bas- 
kets from points in Territorial Group No. 5, including 
Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah, will be charged for 
at an estimated weight of 17 pounds per crate. '

MONEY CLASSIFICATION. 



A.— (1) Packages containing money, bonds, or other 
securities must be received for transportation only 
when delivered at the office by shippers. Shipments 
of coin or bullion too heavy to be carried by hand may 
be called for by wagon, but a representative of the 
shipper must accompany and retain custody of the 
shipment until delivered by shipper at the express 
company's office. 

(2) A receipt of the prescribed form must be given 
for all matter received. Shipments must not be received 
for transportation at the rates named in the money 
classification unless the value is declared by shipper 
and marked by him upon the package. 

(3) Packages of money, bonds, or other securities 
in amounts of $500.00 or over must not be received for 
transportation unless the person who delivers the pack- 
age to the company shall at the time of said delivery 
write his name in ink on the package. 

(4) The charge on any shipment carried at rates 
established by the Money Classification must be a 
multiple of 5, and when in computing charges the 
result is not a multiple of 5, the next higher multiple 
of 5 must be charged. This rule will not apply to 
nickel or copper coins — see Item C (2). 

(5) When special rates on currency, coin, bullion, 
or securities are named they remove the application of 
the classification rating on the same commodity and 
between the same points. 

(6) When "Currency" is mentioned in the following 
articles it means "Paper Currency," and when "Cur- 
rency Rate" is mentioned it means "Scale R" or "Spe- 
cial Rates on Currency" where issued; when "Merchan- 
dise Rate" is mentioned it means the merchandise rate 
applicable to a merchandise shipment of not more than 
100 pounds. 

(7) Unless otherwise provided, a minimum charge 
applies on a single shipment for each company carrying, 
except that between common points the minimum will 
be the same as if carried through by one company. 

(8) When charges are prepaid, the package and way- 
bill must be marked "Prepaid $ " When so 

marked or way-billed, package must be delivered with- 
out collection of charges from the consignee, and any 
undercharge expensed on or charged against the for- 
warding agent, to be collected from the shipper, in ac- 
cordance with the instructions of each company. If 
charges are paid in part, notation to that effect must 
appear on the package and on the way-bill. 

B.— (1) Unless otherwise provided, graduated charges 
shown in Scales S or U must be assessed on shipments 
of less than .$1,000.00, and where the rate per §1,000.00 
applicable to a shipment is not shown in those scales, 
the next higher rate must be used for ascertaining the 
charge, which must not be more than for $1,000.00 at 
the rate applicable. 

(2) When shipments, subject to graduated charges, 
under Scales S and U, are carried by two or more com- 
panies, and the shipping point or destination is an ex- 
clusive office, the charge must be the graduate under 
the applicable rate per $1,000.00 based upon the through 
merchandise rate per 100 pounds to destination, via the 
transfer point shown in originating company's tariff 
which produces the lowest through rate; when the 
through rate is less than $2.00 per $1,000.00 the minimum 
through charge is 50 cents, unless the graduate under 
rate of $2.00 per $1,000.00 is less. 

Governed by Rule 16, except as otherwise provided 
m Rule 8. 

C. — (1) United States or Canadian silver coin. On 
amounts of $1,000.00 and over the rate per $1,000.00, face 
value, is the same as the rate on merchandise per 100 
pounds between the same points, but never less than 



50 cents per $1,000.00; on amounts less than $1,000.00, 
charge according to Scale U, using the same rate as is in 
effect on merchandise per 100 pounds, but the charge for 
less than $1,000.00 must not be more than would be 
charged for $1,000.00. Example. — If the merchandise 
rate is 40 cents per 100 pounds, the rate on silver coin in 
amounts of $1,000.00 and over will be 50 cents per 
$1,000.00, and in amounts less than $1,000.00 the charge 
will be the graduate under the 40-cent rate, as shown in 
Scale U. 

(2) Nickel or copper coins must be charged the same 
as a merchandise shipment of the same weight and 
value (see Rule 11). Two or more packages containing 
nickel or copper coins, forwarded by one shipper, at 
the same time, to one consignee, at one local address, 
must be charged for on the aggregate weight and value. 

(3) Packages containing both currency and coin 
must be charged the rate applicable to the kind of coin 
taking the higher rate, but the charge must not be 
greater than the aggregate separate charges on each 
kind of money enclosed, except that packages contain- 
ing currency and silver, when silver does not exceed 
$5.00, may be taken at the same rate as though all cur- 
rency, and except that packages containing gold coin 
and silver when silver does not exceed $5.00 may be 
taken at the same rate as though all gold coin. 

(4)_Two or more packages of coin, to which the same 
classification applies, when forwarded by one shipper, 
at the same time, to one consignee, at one local address, 
must be charged for on the aggregate value. If the 
weight is a factor in determiningthe charge, the weights 
must also be aggregated. 

(5) Mixed shipments. Packages containing articles 
of more than one class must be charged the rate appli- 
cable to the highest classed article contained therein, 
but the charge must not be greater than the aggregate 
separate charges on each article enclosed. 

D. — (1) Gold or. dore bullion, gold dust, gold sul- 
phides, gold cyanides, or any other form of uncoined 
gold, must be charged gold coin rates on value and mer- 
chandise graduated rates on weight in excess of 4 pounds 
to the $1,000.00 value. 

(2) Silver bullion, silver sulphides, silver precipi- 
tates, silver cyanides or any form of uncoined silver, 
silver coin of Mexico, South America, and other foreign 
countries, excepting Canada or Newfoundland, must 
be charged for on the market value as follows: In 
amounts of $1,000.00 the rate per $1,000.00 or more will 
be the same as the merchandise rate per 100 pounds, 
but not less than 50 cents per $1,000.00; if the weight 
exceeds 100 pounds to the $1,000.00 value charge addi- 
tionally merchandise pound rates on the excess weight. 
For amounts less than $1,000.00 charge the same as for 
a merchandise package of the same weight and value, 
but the charge for less than $1,000.00 must not be more 
than would be charged for $1,000.00. 

(3) The transfer, from a United States mint to as- 
sistant treasurer of United States or banks in same city, 
of coin which has been received in exchange for old gold 
consigned to the mint with instructions to have it coined 
and the proceeds deposited in some bank or with the 
assistant treasurer to the credit of the sender, must be 
charged 25 cents per $1,000.00; minimum, 25 cents per 
shipment. 

Old silver consigned to a United States mint or assay 
office not purchased by the Government, but returned 
in bars to the express company and sold for the original 
shipper, must be charged one-half of one per cent on the 
amount realized, in addition to the regular transporta- 
tion charge on the shipment to the mint or assay office, 
and for return of the money. The extra charge in ad- 
dition to regular transportation charge on any shipment 
shall not be less than 50 cents.

(3) Collections. The charge for the collection and 
remittance of proceeds of notes, checks, drafts, bills, or 
accounts, upon which no outward charge was made from 
the point of origin to the point where the collection is 
made, must be one-third more than the charge provided 
for paid C. O. D.'s irr item F (2). 

(4) Remittances for paid C. O. D.'s or paid collections 
must be made by means of money orders, or by check 
provided for that purpose, issued by the agent of the 
company making the collection; the money order or 
check to be made payable to the order of the shipper of 
the original C. O. D. or collection, and the money order 
or check inclosed in or accompanied by the original C. 
O. D. or collection envelope, must be forwarded through 
the United States mail addressed to the shipper. 

(5) The charge for collecting and remitting paid C. 
O. D.'s or collections as shown above must be deducted 
from the amount collected, and the money order or 
check made for the difference, unless, by shipper's in- 
structions, return charges are to be collected from the 
consignee, in which event the money order or check 
must be drawn for the full amount. 

(6) Paid C. O. D.'s or collections containing currency 
and signed contracts, notes, lease, mortgage, or re- 
deemed pawn tickets, must be charged for on the ag- 
gregate amount of currency and face value of the con- 
tract, note, lease, mortgage, or redeemed pawn ticket, 
same as if all currency. When instructions are given 
by shipper to deliver a shipment upon execution of a 
signed contract, or to accept a note, check, or draft in 
payment of a G. O. D. or collection of any character, 
charge must be based on the face value of the paper. 
Item 3 of the foregoing will govern the charge on sucn' 
remittances in payment of collections on which no out- 
ward charge was made. Collections with instructions 
to accept partial payment must not be taken unless 
directed by the shipper to return the amount paid with 
the collection at once, and when such partial payments 
are returned, charge shall be made only on the amount 
enclosed. A bank book or other deposit book, when 
accompanying a draft for collection, may be forwarded 
and returned without additional charge. Remittances

such as are referred to in this item must be enclosed in 
the original C. O. D. or collection envelope, sealed and 
regularly way-billed, and when, by direction of the 
shipper, return charges are collected of the payor of 
such C. O. D.'s or coTlections, they must be way-billed 
prepaid. In no case must the return charge be enclosed 
in the envelope. 

(7) For advancing the purchase price of goods con- 
tained in a shipment or for advancing any sum of money 
on a shipment, the same charge must be made as is 
charged for the collection and transmission of a C. O. D. 
of equal amount. This does not apply to transporta- 
tion charges advanced to other carriers, or for customs, 
fees, or duties. The purchase price of a shipment will 
not be advanced unless advice has been received from 
the agent at destination that the consignee has depos- 
ited the amount of the purchase price with him, or has 
given sufficient guarantee that the shipment will be 
accepted and paid for on arrival. The purchase price 
of any shipment will not be advanced to a connecting 
company. 

(8) Collections must not be accepted unless agents 
are assured of the identity and responsibility of the 
senders. 

(9) Collections must not be received more than 
twenty days before due, unless shipper states in writ- 
ing that the payor has signified his intention to pay the 
obligation upon presentation, or within twenty days. 
Such paper, if unpaid at the expiration of the time in- 
dicated, must be returned to shipper. All collections 
returned unpaid must contain a memorandum fully 
explaining why payment was not made. Collections 
must not be held more than thirty days after receipt at 
destination. 

(10) Notes, endorsed drafts, or other papers requir- 
ing protest must not be received for collection. 

(11) Collections received by mail must be returned 
to the agent at the point from which the collection was 
mailed. 

(12) Collections must not be made unless the paper 
for collection has been received in a collection envelope, 
regularly way-billed. 

(13) Bonds, coupons, or other securities, mortgages, 
or deeds, legal or other valuable papers for collection, 
must be enclosed in sealed envelopes and endorsed with 
description and value of contents, and marked C. O. D. 
$ (the amount to be collected). If con- 
signee is to be permitted to examine the papers before 
payment, instructions to that effect must be marked 
on package by the shippers, who must release the ex- 
press company, on the company's form provided for 
that purpose, from all loss resulting from such exami- 
nation. 

The outward charge must be as required by the 
classification on similar paper not sent for collection. 
The charge on the amount collected and transmitted 
must be the charge on a paid CO. D. of like amount. 
If returned unpaid the same charge must be made for 
the returned shipment as applied when originally for- 
warded, the outward charge being shown as expense 
on the way-bill and package. If any service is to be 
performed by the express company in exchanging prom- 
issory notes or other obligations, in examination of 
titles, or any other service beyond the usual C. O. D. 
service, the business must not be accepted except under 
special contract authorized by the proper officer. 

(14) Notes, checks, drafts, bills, or accounts for col- 
lection must, when forwarded, be way-billed P. O. R. 
(Pay on Return). Such collections, returned uncol- 
lected, must be charged 25 cents each; when carried 
by two or more companies, and point of origin or des- 
tination is an exclusive office, add 15 cents for each 
additional participating company. 

(15) Drafts sent for acceptance, or notes in blank, 
sent for signature: Way-bill P. O. R. (Pay on Return), 
and charge currency rate on the face value of the paper 
when returned. If returned without acceptance or 
signature, charge 25 cents; when carried by two or more

companies and point of origin or destination is an 
exclusive office, add 15 cents for each additional par- 
ticipating company. 

(16) For obtaining from consignee receipts for de- 
livery of packages and returning such receipts to the 
shipper, a charge of 10 cents for each receipt must be 
made; when carried by two companies, the charge,of 
10 cents is to be divided equally. 

(17) When the proceeds of a collection are, by order 
of the shipper, deposited in a bank by the express 
company at the place where collection is made, evi- 
dence of such deposit must be returned to shipper in 
the collection envelope and charges assessed at 40 cents 
per §1,000.00 on the proceeds of the collection, minimum 
charge 50 cents.

lines, when enclosed in sealed envelopes and forwarded 
as C. O. D., with privilege of examination, must be 
charged for at merchandise graduated charge, mini- 
mum 30 cents, and in addition the valuation charge 
under Rule 11. 

When carried by two or more companies, and the 
shipping point or destination is an exclusive office,, 
the minimum is 25 cents for each company carrying. 

The charge for returning the money will be the same 
as for a paid C. O. D. of like amount. If the amount 
is not collected, the bill of lading must be returned 
without additional charge. 

Bills of lading covering shipments of liquor must be 
refused. 

(2) When a bill of lading sent by express is by 
shipper's orders exchanged for a new bill of lading, the 
additional charge for securing the latter and returning 
it to the shipper must be the same amount as was 
charged for the original bill of lading. 

(3) When not sealed, or when accompanied by in- 
structions requiring agents, before delivering the bill 
of lading, to obtain signatures to notes, or to place 
mortgages for record, secure insurance, or to render 
other service than simply collecting the amount of the 
C. O. D. and returning the papers to the consignee, 
the outward charge must be $1.00, prepaid, to be 
divided equally between the companies carrying; the 
return charge, whether carried by one or more com- 
panies, must be, when the amount of notes or mort- 
gages is $100.00 or less, three per cent thereof; when 
the amount exceeds $100.00, one per cent thereof, with 
a minimum charge of $3.00. When carried by more 
than one company, the company executing the com- 
mission shall be entitled to two-thirds of the return 
charge. If the consignee declines to execute the papers, 
and they are returned in original condition to shipper, 
the bill of lading must be returned without additional 
charge. 

(4) Where goods have been shipped by freight and 
a bill of lading for same sent by express C. O. D., the 
notice of nonpayment shall not be given before the 
arrival of the goods at destination. 

H. Legal and other papers in manuscript, including: 
checks payable to order, canceled vouchers, canceled 
checks, canceled drafts, and canceled certificates of 
stock, must be charged the same as for a merchandise

coupons must be charged currency rate on the declared 
value, and if the weight exceeds one pound merchandise 
graduated charge on the weight must be assessed 
additionally.

issued, the amount of which must be entered in the 
receipt and a memorandum of such value must be 
attached to the ticket. 

(2) The amount necessary for the redemption of the 
goods or renewal of the ticket, together with the pawn 
tickets and memorandum of value, must be enclosed 
in a sealed envelope, with total value of money and 
goods for which the ticket was issued marked thereon,

addressed to the agent of the company at the point 
where goods were pledged and charged for at currency 
rates prepaid; tickets from one shipper to be presented 
to different pawnbrokers in the same city may be en- 
closed in the same envelope. 

(3) The goods, when redeemed and returned, must 
be charged for at regular rates according to classifica- 
tion and, in addition, a charge of not less than 25 cents 
for each lot redeemed, to cover expense of packing or 
handling.

must be made as for a paid collection of like amount.

order must be returned within ten days with charges 
of 25 cents. When carried by two or more companies, 
charges will be divided equally, the transferring com-

(3) If the company by whom the order was for- 
warded does not share in the earnings on the goods or 
money because of their being reforwarded to an office 
reached by other companies' lines, the order, when 
complied with, shall be returned to the office from 
which it was sent, subject to a charge of 25 cents, which 
shall accrue to the company through whom the order 
was given. 

(4) The above rule does not apply to orders for the 
purchase of goods. 

K. Undelivered mail matter. Orders from shippers 
requiring agents at other points to call upon post- 
masters for undelivered mail, matter consigned to 
various addresses, to be rewrapped and returned to

DECISIONS AMD ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS. 



IN RE MORGANTON MANUFACTURING AND TRADING COMPANY v. 
SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

It appears in this case that the shipment of freight was not delivered to 
consignee, nor was any notice sent to consignee of the arrival of freight. 

Southern Railway Company issued an attachment against consignee and 
had same levied on the consignment of freight. Consignee was insolvent and 
had left the State before the arrival of freight at destination. Consignor 
insisted upon its right to stop the goods in transit, for that the purchase money 
had not been paid. Consignee was insolvent. Consignor offered to pay freight, 
but refused to pay demurrage charges. There was no default on part of con- 
signor. He was ready and offered to pay freight, and this was refused by 
Southern Railway Company on account of attachment referred to above. 

We are of the opinion that Southern Railway Company should have deliv- 
ered the freight to consignor upon payment of freight charges, and that con- 
signor is not liable for demurrage. Franklin McNeill, 

January 14, 1911. Chairman. 



IN RE VIRGINIA AND CAROLINA SOUTHERN RAILROAD COMPANY- 
APPLICATION FOR EXTENSION OF HOURS OF LABOR OF THE 
TRAIN DISPATCHER AT LUMBERTON, N. C. 

It appearing to the Corporation Commission that the safety of the traveling 
public will not be endangered by extending the hours of labor of the telegraph 
operator at Lumberton, N. C, from eight to twelve hours in any twenty-four 
hours, the petition is granted ; and it is ordered, that the hours of labor of 
petitioner's telegraph operator at Lumberton, N. C, may be extended from 
eight to twelve hours in any twenty-four hours, as provided by chapter 450, 
Laws of 1907. Franklin McNeill, 

February 27, 1911. Chairman. 

SHEPHERD STRUDWICK et als. v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

On the 27th of March, 1911, it was, on petition in this case, ordered that the 
special brick rate from Goldsboro to Durham and other Southern Railway 
points be rescinded ; order effective April 15, 1911. 

On the 4th day of April petition was filed by the Goldsboro Brick Company, 
asking that the order be so modified as to make it effective August 1, 1911, 
alleging that contracts had been entered into by them which would cause them 
damage if the order were made effective earlier. 

Notice of this . petition was served on the parties, and the matter was set 
for hearing April 11, 1911. At this hearing petitioner was represented by 
Maj. H. L. Grant, and complainant, Shepherd Strudwick, appeared in person, 
and Judge J. S. Manning represented the Belvin Manufactory, located at 
Durham; N. Weil, manager of brick plant, at Goldsboro, also appeared and 
was heard. 



248 X. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Petitioner shelved that at the time of filing his petition he was under eon- 
tract to deliver 600,000 brick at Durham, but that since filing same 300,000 had 
been delivered, and that 300.000 were to be delivered beginning May 1, 1911. 

Under the facts in this case, the Commission is of opinion that the petition 
should be dismissed. 

It was admitted by petitioner that he could only contend to have the bene- 
fit of the special rate as to the brick which he was under contract to ship on 
the 27th of March. 

The Corporation Commission cannot make an order of such a character. 
An order rescinding the special rate must be applicable to all shipments made 
after April 15th or to none. All rates made by the Corporation Commission 
are subject to modification when they appear to be unreasonable or unjust, 
and all contracts based on such rates should be made with reference to the law. 

Franklin McNeill. 

April 14, 1911. Chairman. 



CITIZENS OF GOLDSBORO, WILMINGTON, MOUNT OLIVE, WARSAW, 
et ALS., v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY— ADDI- 
TIONAL PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE BETWEEN WILMINGTON AND 
GOLDSBORO— ORDER. 

Brown, Comm issioner: 

Proceedings began in this case with the filing of a petition with the Commis- 
sion signed by the Senators and Representatives in the General Assembly from 
the counties of New Hanover, Duplin, Pender, Sampson, and Wayne. The pe- 
tition sets out in part as follows : 

"The proposed train would develop a very large local travel between Wil- 
mington and Goldsboro, especially on the part of commercial travelers, and also 
those who would enjoy the benefit of a day spent in Goldsboro and a return 
home the same night. 

"The passengers on the 'Norfolk Shoo-Fly' and all passengers arriving in 
Goldsboro from all directions later than 3 p. ni. have to lay over in Goldsboro 
until next morning, before leaving for Wilmington or any point between Golds- 
boro and Wilmington. 

"Some of the benefits derived by the public are enumerated as follows : 
Leaving Wilmington on the proposed schedule at 4 a. m., one could go to Nor- 
folk, arriving at 1 :35 p. m., spend over three hours in Norfolk and return to 
Wilmington by midnight o'f the same day. Leaving Wilmington at 4 a. m., one 
could go to Richmond, connecting at Rocky Mount with the Fayetteville shoo- 
fly, arriving there at 2 p. m., return to Wilmington the next morning or go on 
to Washington at 4 p. m. Leaving Washington at 9 :40 p. m., a traveler could 
reach Wilmington the following morning. 

"Leaving Wilmington at 4 a. m., one could connect at Goldsboro with the 
-Southern and reach Raleigh at 8:35 a. m., leave there at 12:30 p. m. and 
reach Wilmington at 6:15 p. m., or, if desired, one could remain in Raleigh 
until 6 :30 p. m. and return to Wilmington by midnight of the same day. 

"Leaving Wilmington on the proposed schedule at 4 a. in., the traveler could 
reach Durham at 9:50 a. m. and leave there at 5:25 p. in., reaching Wilmington 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 249 

by midnight. Should it be desired to visit Greensboro, the traveler might 
take the same train and reach the Guilford capital at 12 :10 p. m., and after 
spending three hours there, return the same day, reaching home by midnight. 

"The same possibilities of travel might be enjoyed to Kinston, Wilson, Rocky 
Mount, and a dozen other North Carolina towns, and these benefits would be 
enjoyed not only by Wilmington, but by all the territory between Wilmington 
and Goldsboro, and from the Clinton branch, tapping the Wilmington and 
Weldon at Warsaw." 

This was followed by petitions from business men and citizens of Wilmington, 
Goldsboro, and Rocky Point, Burgaw, Warsaw, Faison, Magnolia, Rose Hill, 
and Mount Olive, towns intermediate between Wilmington and Goldsboro. 
The petition of the business men of Wilmington says : 

"We the undersigned citizens, residents and business men of Wilmington, 
appreciating the need and value of additional passenger train service on the 
Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, and realizing the ease and economy with 
which such service may be provided sfor by the Atlantic Coast Line by an 
extension to Wilmington of the Norfolk shoo-fly, now. operated from Norfolk, 
Va., to Goldsboro, without interruption of present schedules, respectfully peti- 
tion your honorable body to thoroughly investigate the feasibility of such 
service, and if compatible with your sense of justice to the traveling public and 
the railroad company, that you order the continuance of this train from Golds- 
boro to Wilmington on such schedule as may be deemed expedient. 

"We respectfully submit that under present schedules of the Atlantic Coast 
Line the traveling public, while enjoying an excellent service in connection with 
through trains to the north, local travel between this city and Goldsboro is but 
poorly conserved, and that it is next to impossible to visit any city of impor- 
tance in this section of the State without serious inconvenience and delay. 

"We further submit, in spite of the protests of the railroad company, that 
such a train would prove a paying investment and would prove of material 
benefit to the public, developing a large local patronage out of Wilmington by 
traveling men who are now forced, by circumstances to cover much of this 
territory by private conveyance, and a corresponding large local travel into 
Goldsboro by persons who would find it possible to spend a day in Goldsboro or 
proceed to points beyond and return the same evening. The possibilities of 
the development of still larger travel will occur to your honorable body upon 
an investigation of the facts. 

"We further submit that the public is entitled to some consideration at your 
hands in this respect, and would thank you to give this petition your early 
attention." 

The Cape Fear Council of United Commercial Travelers, at Wilmington, an 
organization of one hundred and twenty-five members, in its petition says : 

"Whereas, through the introduction of a resolution in the North Carolina 
General Assembly by Representative R. L. Carr of Duplin County, and through 
other efforts, a movement has been inaugurated by the business public for a 
better passenger train service on the Wilmington and Weldon division of the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railway, between this city and Goldsboro, corresponding 
to the service now given by the early trains of the Seaboard Air Line and on 
the W. C. and A. division of the A. C. L. ; and 

"Whereas the movement for this train, both in the matter of service and the 
ease and economy under which the service may be provided by an extension 



250 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

of tlie Norfolk shoo-fly from Goklsboro to Wilmington, is easily apparent to 
the most casual observer ; and 

"Whereas such service would be of incalculable benefit to the large number 
of traveling men who are now dependent very largely upon private conveyance 
for covering this territory with anything like facility and dispatch, and for 
other reasons that will easily appear from an investigation of the subject of 
travel to and from points in this State : be it, therefore, 

"Resolved, That we join heartily in the petition to the North Carolina Cor- 
poration Commission for a thorough investigation of the needs of this service, 
and, if found expedient, that the Corporation Commission at once take action to 
require the Atlantic Coast Line to provide this service." 

Petitions were served, and answer filed through Mr. W. H. Newell, general 
superintendent of respondent company, alleging that the establishment of the 
service petitioned for was impracticable, declining to grant the relief sought. 

For convenience of parties and after due notice, the case was assigned for 
hearing at Goklsboro on the 20th day of February, 1911. 

Petitioners were represented by M. W. Allen, Esq., J. O. Carr, Esq., and J. 
D. Langston, Esq., attorneys; and respondent by George B. Elliott, Esq., 
assistant general counsel ; W. H. Newell, general superintendent ; W. J. Craig, 
passenger traffic manager, and W. R. Sullivan, assistant to the president. 

Delegations of citizens from various towns between Goklsboro and Wil- 
mington were present to give testimony, many of whom were examined. 
Stenographic report of the evidence is taken down and is of record in the case. 

Petitioners contend that it is practicable; that the necessities and conveni- 
ence of the traveling public demand additional train service between Wil- 
mington and Goklsboro. That is, that respondent's train No. 91, arriving in 
Goklsboro at 9 :55 p. m., extend its run from Goklsboro to Wilmington, or 
that passenger service be given from Goklsboro after 9:55 p. m. to Wilming- 
ton and intermediate points. That passenger train service be given leaving 
Wilmington about 4 a. m. and arriving in Goklsboro at about 6 :45 a. m. 
and in time to make connection with No. 21 Southern Railway train going 
west and No. 99 of respondent road leaving Goklsboro at 7 a. m. for Rocky 
Mount and Norfolk. 

It is found that there are only two passenger trains operated daily between 
Wilmington and Goklsboro each twenty-four hours : 

No. 48, leaving Wilmington at S :40 A. M. 

No. 42, leaving Wilmington at 7 :00 P. M. 

No. 41, leaving Goklsboro at 6 :40 A. M. 

No. 49, leaving Goklsboro at 2 :59 P. M. 

That it is impossible for a passenger at any point between Wilmington and 
Goklsboro to leave home and go beyond Goklsboro, east, west, or north, and 
return same day ; that a passenger arriving at Goklsboro from any point east, 
west, or north of Goklsboro after 3 o'clock p. m. and desiring to go to Wil- 
mington, has to stay in Goklsboro until the following day; that it is impossi- 
ble to come to Raleigh, the capital of the State, and return the same day. 

That the establishment of this train would be of great convenience, not only 
to passengers desiring to come to Raleigh and return same day. but to passen- 
gers desiring to go to points west of Raleigh and to Asheville and Western 
North Carolina resorts. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 251 

While petitioners did not undertake to give the volume of traffic, yet accord- 
ing to testimony of witnesses, on a recent occasion about fifty passengers from 
Raleigh had to stay over in Goldsboro all night. 

That if this service was inaugurated it would be possible for a passenger to 
leave Wilmington at 4 a. m. and arrive in Asheville at 7 p. m. same day. 

That it would also be possible for passengers to go to Rocky Mount, Rich- 
mond, Norfolk, Kinston, and other points and back same day. 

That there is considerable local travel to Goldsboro from points intermediate 
between Wilmington and Goldsboro, as evidenced not only by testimony of 
witnesses, but by exhibit of respondent showing that there were 2,49S tickets 
sold under present schedules during the month of January, to Goldsboro alone, 
and adding the same number for the reverse way would give 4.996 tickets to 
and from Goldsboro alone, not counting tickets to and from intermediate points 
and to points beyond Goldsboro. 

That passengers local to Goldsboro are greatly inconvenienced by reason of 
present schedules, in that it is impossible to go to Goldsboro, attend to any 
business of any moment, do any shopping, and return the same day. 

That people having to attend court at Goldsboro (there being six courts a 
year), living ten, twenty, or thirty miles distant, cannot leave home in the 
morning and reach there in time for court, but have to go the day before, and 
if kept until 3 o'clock the next day have to remain over two nights. 

That the traveling salesmen, Wilmington being headquarters for a large 
number, are inconvenienced for lack of an early train out of Wilmington. 

That the morning daily papers of Wilmington and mail, under present sched- 
ule, does not reach intermediate points until a late hour in the morning, too 
late for distribution through the rural routes. 

That the passenger facilities between Goldsboro and Wilmington have not 
increased in the last twelve years. (See testimony of L. M. Micheaux.) That 
the passenger service between Goldsboro and Wilmington is not as good as it 
was twenty-five years ago. (See testimony of S. P. Best.) 

That there is not a city in the State of any size that has not an early morn- 
ing train carrying passengers running out in every direction, and giving 
better service than respondent gives Wilmington. Out of Wilmington south, 
over its own line, it has an early morning train and three trains daily. Even 
at Goldsboro there are three trains a day carrying passengers in every direc- 
tion except Goldsboro to Wilmington, where there are only two trains. 

The relief sought in this case is through authority granted the Commission 
as provided in section 1066, Revisal, and chapter 460, Laws of 1907. 

Section 1066 : 

"The Corporation Commission shall have general control and supervision of 
all railroad companies . . . and all other companies engaged in the trans- 
portation of freight and passengers . . . and to require all transportation 
companies to establish and maintain all such public-service facilities and 
conveniences as may be reasonable and just." 

Chapter 460, Public Laws 1907 : 

"To require, when practicable and when the necessities of the traveling 
public, in the judgment of the Corporation Commission, demand, that any 
railroad in this State shall install and operate one or more passenger or freight 
trains over its road, and also require any two or more railroads having inter- 
secting points to make close connection at such points : Provided, that no 



252 N, C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

order under this act shall be made unless the business of the railroad jus- 
tifies it." 

However, the question of jurisdiction has been well defined and settled by 
decisions of the higher courts. 

It will be noted that the Commission can require additional passenger train 
service when the necessities of the traveling public, in the judgment of the 
Commission, demand it, the only provision being that the business of the road 
justify it. Respondent did not undertake to show that the business of the road 
would not justify it, but admitted that the earnings from the passenger trains 
alone now running between Goldsboro and Wilmington would show a profit 
after providing for the expenses of running an additional train. The Wil- 
mington and Weldon division of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad is and has 
been the most prosperous road in the State, and that part of the road from 
Wilmington to Goldsboro being the best part of it, being the throat or main 
artery of the system through the counties of New Hanover, Pender, Duplin, 
Sampson, and Wayne, with lands rich and fertile, being a prosperous agricul- 
tural country, with a population, according to the last census, of 13S,630 
inhabitants ; Wilmington with a population of 25,74S ; Goldsboro with a popu- 
lation of approximately 7,000, and eighteen progressive towns intermediate, 
with no better passenger facilities than niany years ago. 

The business men of Wilmington, the business men of Goldsboro, of Warsaw, 
Mount Olive, Clinton, and each of the eighteen towns intermediate feel that 
they are entitled to better passenger service, and are appealing, united, earnest, 
asking that the respondent be required to grant the relief asked, and in doing 
so are of the opinion that the additional service asked for will be profitable to 
the road, and if it proves not to be, are willing that it be discontinued, and are 
not insisting that it be operated at a loss. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the convenience and necessities of the 
traveling public require and demand additional passenger train service be- 
tween Wilmington and Goldsboro. The question now is the scheduling of an 
additional passenger train that will best serve the communities through which 
the train runs and the traveling public. Subsequent to hearing at Goldsboro. 
the general superintendent of respondent road was called in conference with 
the Commission and was asked to suggest any other schedule that would best 
serve the convenience of the traveling public, but none was offered. Peti- 
tioners ask that such service be established as petitioned for, alleging that 
by such service they would have satisfactory local service between Wilming- 
ton and Goldsboro and at the same time have the benefit of through connec- 
tions to points beyond Goldsboro, east, west, and north. A suggestion was 
made to petitioners that the local travel between Goldsboro and Wilmington 
would be best served by an entirely local train without regard to any connec- 
tions at Goldsboro, running between Goldsboro and Wilmington in the day- 
time ; but petitioners insist upon service as petitioned for, thus giving them 
the benefit of both local and through service. 

All the evidence introduced and presented before it. with other information 
before it, with the petitions signed by leading business men of all towns 
through the section the service is rendered, asking for this schedule, the 
Commission is led to the conclusion that the schedules asked for should be 
granted. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 253 

Will the earnings of the road justify it? The respondent lias not under- 
taken to say it will not. The reports filed in this office show the total earn- 
ings of the road in North Carolina for the year 1900 to be $3,763,025, leaving 
income from operation $1,624,373. For the year 1910 the passenger earnings 
were $1,853,956.27, freight earnings $5,988,726.09, total earnings $7,842,682.36; 
operating expenses $4,921,657.75 ; income from operation $2,921,024.61. Thus 
we find that the earnings of the road in North Carolina have more than 
doubled in the past ten years. Its total earnings, less operating expenses, for 
the year 1910 is nearly as much as the total earnings amounted to ten years 
ago. Its dividend record is well known. As before stated, the road runs 
through the most prosperous section of the system. During the year ending 
December 31, 1910, 285,685 passengers were handled from stations Wilming- 
ton and intermediate points to Goldsboro, and the revenue derived therefrom 
amounted to $189,095. This does not include number of passengers passing 
over the road who do not stop at or depart from stations between Wilming- 
ton and Goldsboro. Revenue from freight forwarded and received from 
stations Wilmington to Goldsboro, $1,123,427. It would be absurd to say the 
earnings would not justify the expense of this additional service ; and. again, 
it is reasonable to suppose that with the increased prosperous conditions all 
along the line as is shown by the increased revenues of the road, that 
increased passenger facilities would be necessary for the convenience of the 
traveling public. 

The Commission is of the opinion in this case that the convenience and 
necessities of the traveling public demand, and that it is practicable that 
respondent operate, an additional passenger train between Wilmington and 
Goldsboro daily by extending its train No. 91 arriving in Goldsboro at 9 :55 
r. m. to Wilmington, and returning leave Wilmington at about 4 a. m. in order 
to make connection with Southern Railway train No. 21 ; or by providing 
transportation for passengers by an additional train for Wilmington leaving 
upon the arrival of train No. 91 and returning leave Wilmington at about 
4 a. m., or in time to make connection with Southern Railway train No. 21 
and respondent's train No. 90. scheduled to leave at 7 a. m. 

It is, therefore, ordered that additional passenger train facilities be pro- 
vided accordingly, beginning on or before the 15th day of May, 1911.

Lee, Commissioner, concurring : 

There is no dissent from the opinion that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad 
Company should operate an additional passenger train between Wilmington 
and Goldsboro, and, as the petitioners have united in asking for the exten- 
sion of the Norfolk train, and as the officials of the Atlantic Coast Line Rail- 
road Company have declined in conference to suggest any other schedule as 
being more reasonable or more satisfactory, I concur in the order granting 
the petition.

CITIZENS OF GOLDSBORO, WILMINGTON. MOUNT OLIVE. WARSAW. 
et als., v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY— ADDI- 
TIONAL PASSENGER TRAIN SERVICE BETWEEN WILMINGTON AND 
GOLDSBORO. 

I regret that I cannot agree with my associates in this case. In my opin- 
ion, the evidence does not show that the convenience of the traveling public 
demands the additional passenger train upon the schedule ordered in this 
case. In my opinion, this would be a dead train so far as local travel is con- 
cerned, meaning thereby travel from point to point between Wilmington and 
Goldsboro. It is not probable that shoppers would avail of this train, as it 
would require them to leave their homes between 4 and 6 o'clock in the morn- 
ing and arrive at destination not later than 7 o'clock, which would cause 
them to have to wait one or more hours before the stores and business houses 
would be open so that they could attend to any business ; nor is it probable 
that shoppers would wait from four to five hours after the stores and busi- 
ness houses are closed to start home, not earlier than 10 o'clock at night. 

It is the same with reference to traveling salesmen, parties who wish to 
attend court, and other business people. I do not think that the evidence 
shows any necessity for a train on this schedule for the convenience of through 
travel. On all of the trains now operated in this territory the schedules sub- 
ordinate the convenience of the local travel to the convenience of through 
travel. No one would contend that the schedules of these four trains would 
be as they now are if operated for the convenience of travel between Wil- 
mington and Goldsboro. 

The suggestion that the schedule ordered will afford facilities which will 
enable parties from this section to visit Richmond, Norfolk, Raleigh, Durham, 
and Greensboro, and spend several hours in the middle of the day and. return 
the same day is high-sounding rather than practical. There is no evidence 
that any considerable volume of travel in that section will avail of such 
schedule. There is now and has been for several years a schedule out of 
Wilmington by way of the Seaboard to Raleigh, leaving Wilmington at 5 a. m.. 
arriving at Raleigh at 12, and returning, leaving Raleigh at 4 p. m., and 
arriving at Wilmington at 12 ; but there is no evidence that any considerable 
travel avails of this schedule. There is now from Goldsboro this facility to 
Norfolk and Richmond, and there is no evidence that any considerable num- 
ber of passengers adopt it. One of the most intelligent witnesses examined 
in this case, who lives in that section, testified that there was no trade or 
travel of consequence between his section and Norfolk or Richmond. I think 
that any additional service that is ordered for this territory should subordi- 
nate the through to the convenience of the local travel. 

In my opinion, a train out of Wilmington about G o'clock in the morning, 
arriving at Goldsboro about 9, and returning, leave Goldsboro at 5 or G and 
arrive at Wilmington at 8 or 9, would be of great service to the traveling 
public for local purposes; that it would, after operation, yield a profit and 
tend to build up that section. I know of no finer section of the State than 
that between Wilmington and Goldsboro, and no section that deserves better 
consideration from the railroad serving it, and I would cheerfully unite in 
ordering an additional passenger service in the daytime for this section, upon 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 255 

a petition from the citizens for any reasonable day schedule. This territory, 
according to the figures quoted in the order in this case, has contributed 
largely to the revenue and prosperity of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad 
Company, and, in my opinion, should have the benefit of additional service. 
Shoppers, traveling salesmen, and people who desire to attend court, and all 
other business people, would be accommodated by such a schedule as that 
which I have named. 

I think this petition should be dismissed. Fbanklin McNeill,

Upon motion of counsel for respondent railroad company, upon further con-

1, 1912, and at which time or at any date thereafter respondent may be heard 
upon the result of the operations of the train for the period of May 15, 1911.

T. C. STEWART v. DURHAM AND SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— IN 
RE SIDE-TRACK FACILITIES. 

Lee. Commissioner: 

This petition was heard on April 20, 1911. Evidence was offered by both 
parties, from which the following facts are found : 

Complainant has in operation a sawmill about 1,600 feet from a point on 
the Durham and Southern Railway, the point at which he asks for a siding 
to be established. He proposes to build a tramway from his sawmill to the 
siding. It is in evidence that complainant has his tram cars at this time. He 
will have approximately 2,000.000 feet of lumber to be shipped from this 
siding, all of which will go over the Durham and Southern Railway. 

Defendant contended that a siding at this point would be dangerous on 
account of grade, but it appears from a profile of defendant's line that there 
is about 500 feet practically level at this point. 

It is ordered that defendant construct said spur side-track upon complain- 
ant doing the grading and furnishing the cross-ties, and within thirty (30) 
days after grading is done and cross-ties furnished by complainant.

LAKE DRUMMOND TRANSPORTATION COMPANY v. NORFOLK 
SOUTHERN RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Lee, Commissioner: 

The Lake Drummond Transportation Company is a common carrier of 
goods, plying boats between Norfolk, in the State of Virginia, and Washing- 
ton and New Bern, in North Carolina. The Norfolk Southern Railroad Com- 
pany is also a common carrier, operating an all-rail steam railroad from 
Norfolk, Virginia, to Washington and New Bern, and to Greenville and Kin- 
ston, North Carolina. 

The Lake Drummond Transportation Company had been making a rate to 
shippers in Norfolk to Greenville and Kinston, in North Carolina (these 
being inland towns), lower than the published rate on the Norfolk Southern 
Railroad to these points. When the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company 
found that this was being done by the Lake Drummond Transportation Com- 
pany, they first levied a wharfage tax on goods received at Washington and 
New Bern from the Lake Drummond Transportation Company, and later 
instructed their agents at Washington and New Bern not to receive any 
goods at their wharf for shipment to Greenville and Kinston. The Lake 
Drummond Transportation Company thereupon applied to the North Carolina 
Corporation Commission for relief, alleging excessive wharfage charge, and 
praying that the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company be required to take 
their shipments for these points. 

It is admitted that all of the goods shipped to Greenville and Kinston by 
the Lake Drummond Transportation Company are received at Norfolk, Vir- 
I— Corp. Com.— 17 



258 N. C CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

ginia (see testimony of M. K. King). On this and other admitted facts the 
Commission finds that the Lake Drummond Transportation Company cannot 
lawfully contract to transport goods from Norfolk, in the State of Virginia, 
to inland towns in North Carolina without first filing a rate with the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission, it being admitted that the Norfolk Southern 
Railroad Company has a published all-rail rate to and from these points. 

The Lake Drummond Transportation Company complains that the Norfolk 
Southern Railroad Company has levied excessive wharfage charge on freights 
going over their wharves at Washington and New Bern, and that no wharfage 
is charged at Elizabeth City, Belhaven, Morehead City, and other towns on the 
North Carolina coast where goods are received by the Norfolk Southern Rail- 
road Company over their wharves. 

The Norfolk Southern Railroad Company admits that it does not have a 
wharfage tariff at these points, except at Morehead City they make a wharf- 
age charge on what is known as heavy freights, such as lumber, logs, cross- 
ties, etc. It denies that the wharfage at Washington and New Bern is 
excessive. 

On the point of excessive charges, the Commission renders no decision, that 
phase of the case not being gone into fully at the hearing. 

On the question of discrimination, the Commission holds that, if the defend- 
ant railroad company levy a wharfage charge at any point, it should levy a 
like wharfage charge at all points where same conditions exist as to the 
relative cost of maintaining the wharf, etc.. and that the same wharfage 
charge should be made to all shippers of all like kinds of freight.

PEOPLES TELEPHONE COMPANY v. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE 
AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY. 

This is a complaint by one telephone company against another, and no sub- 
scriber to defendant's, telephones at Cleveland, Taylorsville, or Statesville has 
complained of any discrimination. In fact, it is not alleged by complainant 
that any subscriber at any of these places is discriminated against. 

The allegation is that subscribers at Cleveland are not treated like sub- 
scribers at Statesville, Taylorsville, and other places, and that subscribers at 
Taylorsville are not treated like subscribers at Statesville, etc. 

Defendants admit that the rate charged at the exchanges specially named 
are not regular rates for exchanges with less than three hundred stations, 
but alleges that there are exceptions to the rule in cases of very small ex- 
changes. Defendants allege that the exchanges at Taylorsville, Cleveland, 
and Statesville are very small, and conditions at each place are set out in 
answer. Complainants insisted upon judgment on the admissions of defend- 
ants. 

It does not appear upon the whole case that any discriminations are made 
by defendants to which complainant has the right to object. The subscribers 
at the exchanges named appear to be content with the service. 

It is, therefore, ordered that this proceeding be dismissed.

DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 259 

TOWN OF RUTHERFORDTON v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY, 
SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

This cause was beard at Rutherfordton on June 15, 1911. Both parties 
were represented by counsel. Typewritten copy of the evidence offered lias 
been made and filed in tbis office. The following facts appear : 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway runs into and terminates within the cor- 
porate limits of the town of Rutherfordton. Its depot is also within the cor- 
porate limits and near its terminus, this being a combination freight and 
passenger station ; the latter consisting of two rooms, one for white and one 
for colored passengers, each being 14' by 9 feet. As a passenger depot, it is 
inadequate. 

Southern Railway runs through the corporate limits of said town, nearly 
parallel with the Seaboard Air Line Railway and about fifty yards from 
the Seaboard Air Line Railway's depot. 

Southern Railway has no depot within the corporate limits of said town. 
but has a passenger station about one mile west of the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway's depot. This depot is located within the corporate limits of Hamp- 
tonville. 

The road from Rutherfordton to each of these stations is over steep hills, 
and in wet seasons is very bad and well-nigh impassable. The citizens, town, 
and county have undertaken to build and have nearly completed a sand-clay 
road from the principal business and residential part of the town of Ruther- 
fordton to the Seaboard Air Line Railway's station, the grade of which will 
not exceed 4% per cent in any part, and for the greater part is practically 
level. This road will cost about $3,500. 

The greater part of the travel at each of the stations above named is to 
and from the town of Rutherfordton. 

It is practicable and the necessities of the case, in the judgment of the 
Corporation Commission, require that the defendants have one common or 
union passenger depot for the security, accommodation, and convenience of 
the traveling public ; and it is ordered that the defendants unite in the joint 
undertaking and expense of erecting, constructing, and maintaining a union 
passenger station at or near the site of the present Seaboard Air Line Rail- 
way's freight and passenger station, commensurate with the business and 
revenues of said station, each defendant bearing one-half of the expense of 
the same. 

It is further ordered that defendants submit plans and specifications for 
said union passenger station to the Commission within thirty days from the 
date hereof; and this cause is continued for further direction.

BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF DAVIDSON COUNTY AND TOWN OF 
LEXINGTON v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— IN RE BRIDGE 
AT CROSSING. 

This is a proceeding under chapter 469. subdivision C, of the Laws of 1907. 
It is alleged that the crossing of the highway over the Southern Railway 
Company's tracks at Lexington. N. C. known as "Cotton Grove and Linwood 



260 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

crossing," is dangerous and a menace to the safety of the public, and that it 
is imperative that a bridge be erected over the tracks of the Southern Railway 
in order to remove this danger. 

After due notice to the parties, the case was heard at Lexington on the 
12th day of June, 1911. Typewritten copy of the evidence offered was made 
and is on file in this office. 

From the evidence and from an examination and view of the location, the 
following facts appear : 

The street of the town of Lexington which leads into the public highway 
known as "Cotton Grove Road" crosses the Southern Railway tracks at grade 
near the town limits of Lexington. The approach from the town side is over 
a street through a cut a little down-grade, but from the other side it is over 
a street through a cut over a steep grade down to the railroad tracks. It is a 
much frequented highway. A dangerous crossing; two collisions occurred 
there recently. It has always been a dangerous crossing, and is more danger- 
ous since the defendant lowered its tracks for the purpose of putting in a 
double track. This crossing should be abolished. 

It is impracticable to erect a bridge over the railroad tracks at this cross- 
ing, but it is practicable to erect a bridge about one hundred yards east of it 
and to provide approaches thereto. There are no approaches to this point 
now. The railroad tracks are near the boundary of the town at this point, 
and the approaches to this bridge would have to be provided by the town of 
Lexington and by the board of county commissioners. 

The Corporation Commission is of the opinion that the complainants should 
abolish the present crossing and provide approaches to the right of way of 
the Southern Railway from the "Cotton Grove Road" on the south and from 
the streets of Lexington on the north, and that the Southern Railway should 
erect at its own expense a bridge at its tracks and prepare and provide ap- 
proaches to the said bridge to the limits of its right of way. 

No order can be made at this time, as at present there are no approaches 
to the point where the bridge may be erected. The parties should agree. 
If complainant will order the present crossing to be abolished and provide 
approaches to the right of way of defendant at a point about one hundred 
yards east of the present crossing, and defendant fails or refuses to erect a 
bridge, it will be within the power of the Corporation Commission to require 
defendant to do what they should do as outlined above.

SALUDA TRADE COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— IN 
RE SIDE-TRACK FACILITIES AND REMOYAL OF DEPOT. 

This is a proceeding alleging that the defendant has not provided ade- 
quate facilities for loading and unloading car-load freight at Saluda, and 
that the necessities of the public require that the passenger station there be 
removed from its present location to a point near the center of the town. 

For the convenience of the parties, the matter was heard at Saluda on 
the 15th day of June, 1913, after due notice to the parties. Typewritten copy 
of the evidence is on file in this office. 






DECISIONS AXD COMPLAINTS. 2()1 

The Corporation Commission is of the opinion, from the evidence and from 
a view of the station and the grounds, that facilities for loading and unload- 
ing car-load freight are inadequate, and that provision can he made for this 
by putting in a side-track on the west side of the railroad track and near the 
present passenger and freight station. 

The Corporation Commission is also of the opinion that it is not practicable 
to require defendant to remove the present passenger station. The principal 
objection to the passenger station will be removed when the suggestion made 
above for loading and unloading car-load, freight is provided for and those 
parts of the siding extending to the center of the town and to the passenger 
and freight station will have been removed. 

It is ordered that the defendant construct a side-track on the west side of 
its track near the passenger and freight station at Saluda which will afford 
ample facilities for loading and unloading car-load freight, and that this be 
done within sixty (GO) days from the date hereof.

CITIZENS OF BOSTIC v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY AND CARO- 
LINA, CLINCHFIELD AND OHIO RAILWAY COMPANY— PETITION 
FOR FREIGHT AND PASSENGER STATION. 

Rogers, Commissioner: 

The petition in this case, signed by twenty-one persons, asks that the Cor- 
poration Commission require the defendant roads to provide at the crossing 
of said roads, west of Bostic, a union passenger and freight station. 

The defendant roads answer and say it is their intention and desire to erect 
and establish a joint station at a point where the Carolina, Clinchfield and 
Ohio Railway crosses under the Seaboard Air Line Railway, three thousand 
four hundred and seventy-five (3,475) feet south of the present station at 
Bostic, and to that end ask permission of the Corporation Commission to 
abandon the present station at Bostic. 

A counter-petition is filed, signed by twenty-seven persons, opposing the 
abandoning of the present station at Bostic. 

The matter was heard at Bostic by the Corporation Commission on June 
3, 1910. 

Many of the petitioners were present, and the Seaboard Air Line Railway- 
was represented by W. A. Gore, superintendent ; and the Carolina, Clinchfield 
and Ohio Railway Company by J. J. McLaughlin, Esq., attorney ; M. J. 
Caples, vice president and general manager, and L. H. Phetteplace, superin- 
tendent. 

Testimony was taken in writing by the Commission's stenographer, type- 
written, and a copy thereof is made a part of the file in this case. 

It appears from the evidence that Bostic is a Seaboard Air Line Railway 
station, three thousand four hundred and seventy-five (3.475) feet eastward 
from a point where the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway crosses under 
the Seaboard Air Line Railway in Rutherford County. 

The Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway has no station for either pas- 
senger or freight at the crossing or in Bostic. It has freight yards one mile 



2C)2 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

north of Bostic and a connecting track jointly ^vitli the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway from its yard to Bostic. a distance of one and one-half miles. The 
movement of freight, therefore, from one road to the other is at the Carolina. 
Clinchfield and Ohio Railway yards from the cars of one road to the cars 
of the other road, when in less than ca*r-load quantities, and is handled by 
the Seaboard Air Line Railway crews either in car-load or less than car-load 
quantities. 

There is no provision for the interchange of passengers. One leaving 
Bostic, or from the Seaboard Air Line Railway trains, wishing to use the 
Carolina. Clinchfield and Ohio Railway, is required to travel by private means 
the one and one-half miles between Bostic and the Carolina, Clinchfield and 
Ohio Railway yards, or vice versa. 

The evidence shows that the approximate earnings of the defendant roads 
at Bostic are for the Seaboard Air Line Railway $600 and the Carolina, Clinch- 
field and Ohio Railway $300 per month, of which $300 is passenger revenue. 

The allegation of petitioners that the station at Bostic is inadequate and 
unfit for passengers is not denied. 

The Commission is of the opinion that, under present circumstances, it 
would be a. hardship upon the petitioners to allow the freight handled by the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway, moving through Bostic, to be warehoused three 
thousand four hundred and seventy-five (3.475) feet out of town, and thereby 
require the return of same by wagon to Bostic. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the general public is interested in 
the passenger facilities at Bostic necessary to their convenience, safety, and 
comfort in the interchange between the defendant roads. 

The Commission, therefore, orders that the freight station of the Seaboard 
Air Line Railway at Bostic be not removed ; and it is further ordered that 
the defendant roads, the Seaboard Air Line Railway and Carolina, Clinchfield 
and Ohio Railway Company, shall unite in affording proper facilities at their, 
."junction near Bostic for the interchange of passengers and baggage and for 
forwarding and delivering them to and from their respective lines and those 
connected with them, and that the passenger station at Bostic be removed 
therefrom to said joint station. 

It is further ordered that if the said roads so elect, they are hereby author- 
ized to have at said junction a union freight warehouse for the transfer of 
such freight as is for transfer. 

It is ordered that the Seaboard Air Line Railway be and is hereby relieved 
from keeping and maintaining a passenger station at Bostic.

CITIZENS OF ASHEBORO v. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND TEL- 
EGRAPH COMPANY AND ASHEBORO TELEPHONE COMPANY. 

This is a petition that defendants be required to so connect the wires of 
their respective companies at Asheboro that patrons of the local telephones 
at Asheboro can have the benefit of long-distance service from and to Ashe- 
boro. 

The Asheboro Telephone Company furnishes local telephone service at 
Asheboro and has connected therewith a limited long-distance service. The 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 263 

Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company furnishes long-distance 
service at Ashehoro, and for that purpose has three hooths in different parts 
of town. 

Before and after this petition was filed defendants were negotiating for 
connection of the two systems at Asheboro by contract. These negotiations 
failed because the Asheboro Telephone Company refused to enter into a con- 
tract. The contract which the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Com- 
pany offered to make with the Asheboro Telephone Company is the same as 
that made with other telephone companies, at other places in this State. The 
evidence tends to show that under such contracts satisfactory service has 
been given to the public, both long distance and local, at several places in 
this State. The evidence tends to show that the Asheboro Telephone Company 
refused to enter into a contract because the citizens of Asheboro were opposed 
to it. 

The Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company applied to the town 
of Asheboro for a franchise to establish a local telephone service at Asheboro, 
to which its long-distance service would be connected, and the town of Ashe- 
boro refused to grant this franchise. 

The Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company contends that the 
Corporation Commission has not the power to compel it to connect its wires 
with the Asheboro Telephone Company. We do not feel called upon to pass 
upon the question of jurisdiction in this case, as we think petitioners can 
obtain relief without invoking it. 

The town of Asheboro has power to grant or refuse a franchise to the 
Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company to do a telephone business 
within its limits. If the Asheboro Telephone Company persists in refusing to 
make a contract with the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company 
for the connection of their wires at Asheboro (such contracts have been tried 
and found to work well at several other places in this State), the town of 
Asheboro could grant a franchise to the Southern Bell Telephone and Tele- 
graph Company to establish local telephone service at Asheboro to which its 
long-distance lines would be connected, and thus secure for its citizens the 
relief which they demand. Inasmuch as petitioners can thus obtain relief 
which they wish, without calling upon the Commission, it is ordered that this 
proceeding be dismissed. Franklin McNeill,
